First concert: Steve Miller Band at Van Andel, with my dad, 1997ish. I think I was in 7th grade.
First real concert: Rage Against The Machine and At The Drive-In at The Palace in 1999. A level of rocking that has yet to be matched at any concert I've attended since.
Did either of them play "Farmer In The Dell" or "A Hunting We Will Go"?
Billy Joel at the Palace - 1994
Lloyd Noble Center - Norman, Oklahoma
Maiden opened and blew the other two bands out of the water.

Unfortunately no, but De La Rocha may have slipped an "Oh, indeed" into "Calm Like A Bomb."
I'm guessing but:
1982 Loverboy Saginaw civic center, then the very next week Sammy Hagar/Aldo Nova Lansing Civic Center.
Not a bad way to start.
Last concert Foo Fighters St. Louis,MO
I see Michigan State as a destination, not a stop.~Mark Dantonio
I remember being REALLY little and my parents took the family to see Peter, Paul, and Mary.
The first concert I actually chose to go to was the Smashing Pumpkins w/ opener Garbage. That one was much better. ;)

Poison and David Lee Roth

About a lucky man who made the grade
Rush - Signals Tour
November 5, 1982
Notre Dame Athletics & Convocation Center - South Bend, IN
Rory Gallagher opened
I saw Stryper in 85, but they don't count.
1986 Ratt and Poison in Muskegon. Poison was the opener and didn't even have a set. Just a white sheet in back of them with Poison written on it.
I think their album had just been released at the time.
There is evil in every berry - Koran
The Doobie Brothers
Pine Knob Music Theater, Clarkston, MI
Still have the long sleeve tee from that show in mothballs
Opening act: Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys, touring solo
My first beer (had more than one, ONLY because I wasn't driving)
Spring of 1995.
Radiohead and REM (Monster tour) @ the Palace
Holy. Fucking. Shit. That show must have been unreal.
Technically, my first "concert" was Pam Tillis at the WK Kellogg auditorium in like 87 or 88. I think it was a FOP fundraiser.
The first show I claim is NIN at Wings Stadium in 95.
This is really sad but:
Soup Dragons opened for INXS at the Palace in 1991ish.
I saw that one when it was at the Breslin.
First one I'm sure I saw was Michigan Fest back in the day, although I have no idea who. First one I can remember was They Might Be Giants in Ann Arbor in probably 1992 or so. 92.1 The Edge used to do a contest where they'd play 2 cover songs, and the first person to call in and name the original artist one. My dad was pretty good at it so we'd always try to win. Hell, I even remember one of the songs. Someone covering George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord". We almost didn't win since someone called in ahead of us and said it was The Beatles, but they didn't count it.
How the hell can I remember that, and not remember what I did last week?
Joe Louis Arena
I won tickets from 92.1 to that show, it also included a pre-party with Radiohead at Sparty's....wtf moment for sure.
