I'm sure there's a thread for this already, but I'm too excited to give a fuck.
I'm going to my first show tonight with my dad, it's Animals as Leaders, Dead Letter Circus, Intronaut, Last Chance to Reason, and Evan Brewer (Oh my God, check him out) So, tell me about your first show. Who were you with? Who was playing? Were they any good? Did you meet any of the band? Etc.


EDIT: Evan Brewer - Actualize

I'm so jealous. That tour didn't come around here. BUT.

The Saints and Sinners tour is.

BTBAM, Animals as Leaders, TesseracT, and at my show.. Dillinger Escape Plan.

My first show was Disturbed, Stone Sour, Flyleaf, and Nonpoint. It was amazing. Disturbed is pretty much my favorite band of all time, and I love the rest.
#3
Very nice! Wish I was seeing that. Mine was The Chariot I think, and there were a ton of other bands that day. I remember The Crimson Armada, PM Today and Ivoryline being there too.

Lamb of God was mine like 5 years ago. We got there just in time to see Trivium's last set but we missed Machine Head.

I went with my friend Ben.

I went to see Rush on their Snakes and Arrows tour in 2007 with my dad and my brother, unfortunately didn't listen to much Rush at all except for 2112 on the drive there, didn't enjoy it quite as much as I should have. Luckily he took us again this year for their Time Machine Tour, it was ****ing incredible

My first show was Sleater-Kinney and Pearl Jam, it was dece until Bono came on stage for the encore and played Keep on Rocking in the Free World
Drop another coin in the slot, and I will tell you more...
#8
Sophomore year I saw Chiodos, Pierce the Veil, Alesana, and The Devil Wears Prada. They all put on a hell of a show, though I don't listen to those bands anymore (save for PTV).

Went with my friends. It was a blasty blast.

Oh, and I'm definitely seeing Animals As Leaders tomorrow night. Couldn't care for the other bands though.

My first show was a Rush concert that me and my friends got tickets to when I was like 16 and we weren't really into them, and we were seated at the back, but for what it was it was alright.

I think Incubus is what I consider my first real concert (something I planned on going, unlike Rush where I wasn't too pumped but the tickets just fell in my lap), and it was pretty good. Also, I got my favorite shirt ever out of it.

It's kinda a hipster thing to say, but you'll probably come to find that the smaller the venue, the better the possibility of it being a good show is. You lose a lot of closeness to the band in arena shows. But that sounds like a pretty damn good show to see for your first concert, good luck man. Oh, and be prepared for loudness.

Mine was Foo Fighters. Von Hertzen Brothers (finnish prog rock band), Michael Monroe (finnish rock legend) and Biffy Clyro were warming up for them. All of the bands were awesome!

You might enjoy Evan Brewer. He's an incredible musician. Dead Letter Circus is also pretty enjoyable.

I enjoy Evan Brewer and Intronaut, but that's it, Dead Letter Circus and LCTR are just okay.

You wouldn't go 2 hours to see a show? I've gone to a 4 hour away show and came back that night (and would probably drive further depending on who is playing). Dedication, man.

It's not like I won't enjoy the show guys I'm just only interested in seeing AAL. I'll still see the other bands.
#16
Linkin Park with 30 Seconds to Mars and Blindside.
It was LP's first gig in Sweden, so that was cool to part of. The setlist was good.
I was a hardcore LP fan at the time, i was also 14.

My first show was Anti-Flag at the Concorde 2 in Brighton, back when I was like 14. I remember I was terrified when the first moshpit started
#21
Dead Letter Circus? You lucky bastard. Not only are they my favorite band, but they're quite possibly the best band ever.

Oh, and my first concert was way back - Stabbing Westward headlining with Econoline Crush and God Lives Underwater opening.

Best concert I've seen was Sevendust and Nonpoint at the 9:30 club in DC.

my first gig was Avenged sevenfold, was wandering around manchester a few hours before the show, went into the local music store, and who's stood there, fecking synyster gates buying a replacement distortion because his broke at soundcheck

few years later i went to see the black crusade tour, was at college during the day which was in town center, on my dinner was walking up market street and i met angela gossow and Phil Demmel,

later that year i went to see megadeth on the coldest day of that year, me and my friend were stood there for about 3 hours, and Dave Mustaine came and offered us both a coffee.

my latest one was when Bullet played the MEN arena, walked back from uni and Matt Tuck is stood outside the back entrance and asked where the nearest starbucks is,

all i can say is i'm one lucky S.O.B, i meet people wandering about my hometown

My first, show was a huge surprise, my sister surprised me with it for my birthday. It was Art of Dying, Skindred, All That Remains and Disturbed as headliner. I loved it even though I was in the farthest back seat possible.
#28
My first show was at a Joan Jett benefit concert in San Francisco, when I was like 9 years old.
I'd say my first REAL show was Weezer, I went with a close friend at the time and thought it was epic. I remember at the end, they played a five-man drum solo (that's ten drum sticks on one kit,) which just blew my mind xD

Check out "Next In Line," "This Is The Warning," "Cage," or "The Mile."

Amazing band.

I'd recommend Fair to Midland and Karnivool as well. Both awesome.

The singer made playing live tough for himself, switching falsetto back and forth. Yeah, they're pretty cool, maybe I'll get to meet them tonight.

My first concert was A Day to Remember back in 2007. There were a bunch of small local acts that opened before them. All in all, an awesome show.
I like St. Anger. Ridicule me, daddy

Mine was actually a local show, we went on impulse because someone we knew was playing there. The band before his band went on was the hardcore/metalcore band, and it was pretty ****ing br00t4l. I don't usually listen to a lot of metalcore, but in a live setting breakdowns are pretty ****ing awesome.

Iron Maiden on the Somewhere Back in Time Tour. Nearly perfect setlist. Unfortunately I couldn't afford to see them in Vancouver again last year, so hopefully they'll be around again.
