    The First Concert You Attended

    My son went on a Mission Trip this summer and one of the adult chaperones was a guy about my age. My son said he was playing some mix CD's one of which was the Moody Blues, the first band I ever saw in concert.

    So it go me wondering what the first concert that folks here ever attended.

    As I said, mine was The Moody Blues with Van Morrison as the opening act. It was at the Cincinnati Gardens some time in September of 1970.

    1971.

    Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick" tour. Second row center seats.

    Couldn't hear for two days.

    I just turned 18 and I have never been to a concert, unless you count the unknown band that I listened to for about 10 minutes after a Columbus Crew game, which I don't even count.

    You expect me to remember the first one? I can't remember any of them!

    1968 -- University of Dayton Fieldhouse (not the arena) -- BB King, Canned Heat, and <mumble>. Cops turned off the power at midnight, band kept playing, cops cleared the stage, mini-riot ensued, a real 60's experience.

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    That would be The Doobie Brothers in 1979 or 1980, Five Seasons Center Cedar Rapids IA.....or maybe it was Alice Cooper
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    I was five years old, and my parents took me. No wonder I have problems
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
