Loud. Very loud
Since light travels faster than sound, people appear bright until you hear them speak.
If that counts I guess the Pam Tillis show I was at counts too.

Muskegon Summer Celebration
My first two concerts were a few months apart and an unlikely combo, around 1994 or so, Metallica and Boyz II Men.
Middle school is a weird time.
Either Eagles or Jethro Tull.
Warped Tour, Pontiac
Reason I was there- Mighty, Mighty, Bosstones
First concert was with my parents at a county fair, Ronnie Milsap.
The first concert I wanted to go and went to was Chicago in late 1977 at Assembly Hall Champaign, Illinois.
Glad I went because Terri Kath died January 1978. That band was never the same after he left.
1990 Queenscryche with Suicidal Tendencies opening down in Kalamazoo. Went with my best friend Eric whom I recently converted from listening to christian rock shit...man I hated Stryper and fucking White Cross
Elton John @ the Silverdome, 1977 (or 78).
Early EJ could blow the lid off the place.
The next year saw Marshall Tucker Band at Munn.
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read. - Groucho Marx
Folks talking about shows with their parents got me remembering - I saw Nat King Cole at the Palmer House in Chicago when I was in 7th grade. Very cool guy!
Stone Temple Pilots
311 & The Roots
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
1989 (or 90?) Ionia Free Fair: Downtown Julie Brown MTV Party Headlining with - Milli Vinilli & Tone Loc. It was so kick ass:)
April 27, 1987
The Joshua Tree Tour
60,000 people jammed into the Silverdome to see U2. The Opening act was Lone Justice.
"I'm just a humble mutha fucker with a big ass dick" -Bunk Moreland
Bonnie Raitt in '88 at the Michigan State Fair, if I remember correctly. I was a tyke, age 4.
The Nugent concert I mentioned earlier was the first with just me and some friends. If I count the ones my parents "dragged" me to it would be either Johnny Cash or Neil Diamond in the '72-73 timeframe after Pine Knob opened. I can't remember which of the two came first, but in either case I was too young to appreciate the greatness of either.

I am guessing that was the Breslin concert. REM played the Palace in the Spring and Breslin in the late summer/early fall.
I went to both. The Palace concert was cool because it was my first concert, but me and three buddies drove over from Grand Rapids and we were all 17. One of the guys had an older brother who bought us a 12 pack that we split. Nobody wanted to get too hammered as we had to drive back that night. The driver (who happened to be the guy who got us the beer) only had one and the rest of us wanted to be alert when driving home.
So when the fall concert came, I was at MSU as a freshman. Those same buddies came with a huge cooler full of beer and we all drank heavily at Brody before walking over to the Bres. Good times!
1983 The Police, Synchronicity Tour
Opener was Joan Jett and Blackhearts
Tickets were $15, the T-shirt was more expensive than the ticket
Maybe not my first, but close and still the best - The Yardbirds on successive nights - first night at Green's Pavilion, Devil's Lake, MIchigan backed up by The Rationals. Next night at Cold Springs Resort, Hamilton Lake, Indiana - an art deco roller rink with about a two foot elevated stage. Jeff Beck on lead guitar and Jimmy Page on bass. Long hair, long military jackets and wide wale corduroy bell bottoms. In my mind's eye I can still still see the wind milling guitar strokes as they crush "The Train Kept Rollin."
Kansas wsg Loverboy. Saginaw Civic Center in '80 or '81.
Before that I saw Dolly Parton at the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo in Wyoming somewhere around '75.
