My first real rock concert was Captain Beyond, opening for Alice Cooper's "School's Out" show, 28 July, 1972!

Hosting Patrick Moraz at my home on the 1st C.H.A.T. tour (3/95).
Comeback tour of Miles Davis (9/81), Concord Pavilion.
Yes' Relayer tour at the Hollywood Bowl in June, 1975--1st ever concert I paid for. In 2002, I saw them on the Magnification tour, during which Anderson fondly remembered that previous show.
Rolling Stones/Guns 'N Roses/Living Colour, 10/89, L.A. Coliseum. 20th row, front and center.
US Festival '82, Devore, CA. For the grand sum of $33, Fleetwood Mac, Kinks, Police, Jimmy Buffett, Santana, Jerry Jeff Walker, Gang of Four, B-52's, Pat Benatar, Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and maybe a couple of others. Brutally hot (105 degrees).

Henry Cow - twice - back in 1977 - most treasured memory...

Also saw Genesis and Yes for the first time the same year...

For Canterbury specialists: I saw the short lived Going Going supporting Gongmaison, Incahoots in '84 and Richard Sinclair's Caravan of Dreams a couple of times in the early 90s.

Cool DVD of that show ( did you get on?Smile) .
 
'Gordon's Alive!'


If I appear on the DVD of the Hampton concert? No, the DVD was recorded on the second night, and I attended on the first night. I was unsure on which one to choose when buying the tickets, and I think I thought the first night was on an easier day for me. Later I thought about how usually second nights are better because they already "practiced" on the first one, and that if there was to be a recording of the show it was more likely to be from the second night instead of the first one (it would have been nice to have a DVD of a concert I attended... though this is close enough, though). So, I do have the DVD... I guess I should watch it one of this days (perhaps my wife would get nostalgic about visiting London), but they also recorded an audio CD in the moment, so some 20 min after the show I got my CD from the concert... excellent audio quality, and I don't hear anything wrong from the mixing nor anything... I don't really understand why sometimes bands have to take so long to release a live album if Wakeman already proved you can do it in 20 min with exellent sound quality (of course, I didn't buy the mass market CD later on, only the DVD).

I like to tell this tale: I was one of the seventeen (17) people attending the Aranis concert in the Triton club (near Paris, in Les Lilas) in 2009.
Hum... Maybe I should have asked to sign my record...

Also, I also like to tell about the concert of Le Silo in Paris last year, just before their appearance at the RIO festival - a concert everyone in the venue must remember, because some maniac a****le dropped a lacrymogene bomb a few minutes before the concert! Angry

I just saw Faith No More a week or so ago; and while many here may scoff at the band, seeing Mike Patton perform live is definitely something I say with extreme pride.

Also have seen King Crimson, and being 27 years of age I consider myself lucky to have seen each and everyone on of those amazingly talented gentlemen. Still missed out on seeing Adrian Belew though, so if he ever comes to the Seattle area that is a must for me.

Ah yes, forgot that one. It was great at the time (including Lake's strop) but the CD of the show isn't good.
 
I've avoided the CD making it the only official ELP release I don't own. They did their best and that was all could be asked.

Fixed it.....no idea how that happened.

Thanks,Dr.
 
No problem....
 
The concert I attended was Gabriel in Chicago Uptown Theater 1977....with Fripp on guitar sitting on a chair of course throughout the whole show.  We had pretty good seats so it's one of my favorites of all of the shows I have been to.

Thin Lizzy (Jailbreak tour) & Queen, October 1976 (A Day at the Races tour).

Starcastle and Utopia's Ra set with about 100 people in an old warehouse/indoor ice hockey venue, December 1977 (Ooops! Wrong Planet tour). 

Peter Gabriel with about 300 people in Nancy, France, November 1978 (second album tour).

Andres Segovia (at age 87) with about 200 other people in Norwich, Norfolk, England, December 1980. Stunning!

Buddy Guy and Luther Allison in 1981 (separate concerts) in a bar (same bar) in Madison, Wisconsin.

U2 in a bar with about 400 people in September, 1981 in East Lansing, Michigan (October tour).

In recent years, seeing Spock's Beard at 3RP in like 2008 with Neal Morse singing on 'The Light' was one of my coolest moments, also seeing IQ on this side of the pond was a highlight.
 
I would love to have seen ELPowell ( seen ELP twice inc their last ever gig at High Voltage)
 
Where did you see them? Not MSG I guess.

Alice Cooper - School's Out tour, 1972
Deep Purple - Machine Head tour, 1973
Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath tour, 1974
David Bowie - The Soul tour, 1974
Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs tour, 1975
Jethro Tull - Too Old to Rock n' Roll tour, 1976
Genesis - Wind & Wuthering Tour, 1977
Pink Floyd - In the Flesh tour, 1977
Yes - Going for the One tour, 1977
Jethro Tull - Songs from the Wood tour, 1977
Neil Young - Rust Never Sleeps tour, 1978
 
Those were the most memorable. I missed out on Led Zeppelin because John Bonham died in September, 1980 and I had tickets for November, 1980. I still have them enshrined, never got a refund.
 
 

If you were in Chicago for any of these, we were probably in the same venue!  Nice list!

Not strictly  Prog. Led Zeppelin in Fort Worth, Texas in 1977. I managed to get two tickets from someone after the show was rescheduled. Could never have gone otherwise. Who could know that it would turn out to be their last time here?  RIP John Bonham.  Cry

On a happier note, and very much Prog, was Yes at Bee Caves (Austin), Texas in 2002. They were in top form that night. A show to remember. Clap

Too many:
 
Pink Floyd, Los Angeles Sports Arena, 1975.  Enthusiastic radio guy backstage with the Floyd for the first time. Roger Waters gave me a glass of white wine.  Nick Mason happy to talk about Principal Edwards and Robert Wyatt.  Rick Wright, a true gentleman.  A great show, with the original versions of Animals and Wish You Were Here, not to be released in the order we heard them.  Saw two nights, even with the LAPD doing that THX 1138 thing.
