Your First Gig...

Post by Discopants on Fri Oct 03, 2008 12:37 am

Spill the beans people. Tell us where, when and how good was it.

Mine was Motorhead in 2002 I think. They played Newcastle City Hall which is a fairly small venue which is great of course. Went with me Dad, was my birthday present that year. Was a fuckin good show and proper loud lol. Going to see them again in November too.

My first concert was with U2 back in 2006. It was in November i think at telstra stadium and it was the best concert that i have ever been to after soundwave. Great lineup and the stadium went of.

BTW! Discopants i have seen motorhead 2 years in a row now. Not to sure if im going again next year but they are pretty good live

As sad as it is, it was Enrique Iglesias, when I was 12, and was still into the teeny bopper, pop stuff, Laughing

At the time I thought it was awesome, but looking back, I wouldn't go see him again, mainly for the fact that's not the type of music I'm into anymore.

my very first concert was the Goo Goo Dolls w/ Counting Crows and Eliot Morris (met him too, nice guy) on August 23rd, 2006. I won a meet n greet through the GGD fanclub and got to meet the band. Smile they're really nice guys. since then, I've seen the Goo Goo Dolls four more times, met them again, and I've also seen Daughtry (the show where the Home video was filmed, I went to that one), Puddle of Mudd(2x) and met them, Nickelback only once, unfortunately, they're so expensive!, Finger Eleven(w/Nickelback and POM), Lifehouse(2x), Eve6, part of Saving Abel, missed most of the show, Matt Nathanson, Colbie Caillat, HoneyHoney, Augustana, Copeland(met them too, they're nice people.).....I think that's about it... alot of these bands played shows together, I actually haven't been to that many shows...if I can remember correctly I've only been to 9 concerts since 2006.

I haven't been to a concert. Meaning to go to the Slipknot one, but I didn't have the money. I'm hoping to get a Soundwave ticket for my birthday though. That'll be my first. Maybe i'll even get a Big Day Out ticket just to go see Bullet For My Valentine, because the rest of that show is utter crap. Except Neil Young.

NO!! NO!! NO!!. Never ever go to a big day out trust me. Either your bored, you get drugged or get in a fight while listening to shitty music. Go to soundwave if any; the line up is magnificent lol:

Alice In Chains
Nine Inch Nails
Devil Driver
35 Crazy Fists
the list just goes on..

Mine was slipknot about a month ago. It was pretty sweet. Hopefully I'll see green day after their new album comes out, and after they actually list the tour dates.
