also playing that day, Primus, The Lemonheads, Dinosaur Jr, Big Star and New Order were the headliners (the reason I paid a whooping £20 for a day ticket!)

That is truly some line up. First memorable gig was probs REM supported by Blue Aeroplanes at Edinburgh Playhouse on Green tout in 1988. I'd been to a number of gigs during early uni days but that's the first one to really grab me

My first memorable show was Martha and the Vandellas. It went downhill fairly rapidly after that one.

@LadyGulag It was a free show at Boston City Hall plaza in the mid-80s, when I was a young'un. I also remember the day because after the show was my introduction to deep-dish pizza.

*** that sentence looks horrible. i was the ten year old seeing dick dale; i was obviously not seeing a ten-year old dick dale (dick dale was 10 in 1947)

Canadian heavy rockers Rush at Wembley Arena in 1983. Memorable because they were my favourite band for a while when I was in my mid teens, God I even enjoyed the 20 minute drum solo. Also memorable because I had to sit my O Level maths exam the following morning at 9am....try doing that with Geddy Lee's high pitched screeching still ringing in your ears..

I don't have much gig experience :D but I'd say AC/DC, I guess it was in 2010

The Housemartins and The Proclaimers in Edinburgh 1987 was a bit special as a first memorable gig especially as The Bluebells were first gig!

Good one! My first proper concert was Depeche Mode. Band seen most often is likely Calexico (which is also the band I traveled furthest for, from SF to LA, and just recently crossed a national border for).

My older cousin took me and her brother to a Ministry/Helmet/Sulpultura show in Oakland (1990)... first proper concert, was 14. When I was older Primus and Butthole Surfers were of my own choosing.
