I recently had my 30th anniversary. No, not for my marriage–coming up on 14 years for that, thank you very much. I’m talking about the anniversary of my first concert. Do you remember your first concert? The excitement, the curiosity, the thrill?
Of course, if your first concert was in the ’80s like mine was, the amount you paid for the ticket wouldn’t even buy a T-shirt these days. You saw bands whose musical legacies are still influential, such as U2, REM, Guns N’ Roses, The Police or obscure individuals like Michael Jackson or Madonna.

Congratulations on your anniversary! And cheers to the next 30 years! 🙂
I wonder if I will remember the first concert at that point. Probably.
Great article. My first concert was Heart with a relatively unknown John Cougar Mellencamp opening for them. He stole the show.
I’d prefer Mellencamp too. I don’t think he uses the Cougar part anymore. Anyway, I never saw him in concert but would have liked to.
First concerts are great, a moment made for memory.
What was yours?
