Concerts you have attended
 
I really like the "what music are you listening to now" thread, but a true indication of music tastes is laying down coin to catch an act in concert 8). So, I'd like to see what groups you all dig enough to actually see in person. List the first and last concerts you saw, plus any significant others you attended.

My first concert, at the cool age of 18, was a triple act of Madness and the Go-Gos opening for David Bowie. For a first concert, it was a homerun. My last was Fleetwood Mac about a year and a half ago with the missus. In between, I inflamed my love of the 80's by seeing Depeche Mode, Devo, the Cure, the B-52's, the Plimsouls, the Bangles, Fine Young Cannibals, Berlin, Greg Kihn, and one of my all time faves, Oingo Boingo.

Who have you all forked over hard earned cash to see?

The only really notable ones are the US Air Force band (They were darn good...), and Video Games Live.

Tommy Tallarico likes my hat! (It's a bliack one with a treble clef)

I've also been to many local band/orchestra concerts, but I don't think you'd care about those.

I saw The Cars in concert once ('84 or '85, can't remember) and Wang Chung was the warm-up band. I love the 80s !! :)

The closest I've ever come to even being in a concert, was when a local radio station was giving away free tickets to see Falling Up, Family Force 5, This Beautiful Republic, and Spoken. I like Falling Up and Family Force 5 but I don't think I'd pay money to see them. If I had the chance to go to a Skillet or Pillar concert though, I'd pay big money!

My first concert was Summer of 07. I saw Styx, Forigner and Def Lepard.

Then, in late 07, I saw Bigs and Rich(not a country fan, but they were opening for.....)BON JOVI!


Then, a few weeks ago, I saw Cheap Trick, Heart, and Journy.

This year, I also want to see the Killers(dont know when they tour) and AC/DC(tours end of the year?)
