I Remember My First Concert

    I was six or seven, I saw the Bratz perform

    live. I had reasonably good seats, too! That's the first one I remember, but apparently I saw High Five perform live in concert once. High Five were a kids program that had five members. They would each do a few short acting things or cooking or how-to's (eg making jelly or a...

    I remember that my first concert was

    Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I didn't want to go see an "orchestra" and for that reason, I argued with my parents about going. Eventually, I gave in reluctantly and went with them to watch. We sat in the second row and I noticed the stage looked like anything but an orchestra pit...

    It was only in January.

    The second concert of The Corrs comeback tour.Undoubtedly the best evening of my life after waiting 21 years to see them.Sheer brilliance.And Andrea Corrs outfit that night should be banned.Far too sexy!

    It also happened to be my first "date".

    March 9th 2012. Asking Alexandria was the headliner, trivium, I see stars, upon a burning body, and one other band performed before. Motionless in White was supposed to play but for some reason they didn't. It was fun, I enjoyed it, getting jostled around and getting bruises...

    I was 14 and I saw Tom Jones live at the

    entertainment centre in Sydney. I only knew of one of his songs as my aunt was a massive fan. We had the nose bleed seats and binoculars.. It was a funny experience seeing all the ladies throw their knickers and bras onstage.

    I was extremely lucky with my first live

    concert experience, and saw a band called Nirvana debut their second album called NEVERMIND. Even though the lead singer was very stoned on heroin, to this day is one of the best live gigs I've ever attended and played a instrumental part in developing the person I am today. RIP...

    They Might Be Giants in Boston last April.

    We got there an hour early, and we ran into my mom's friend. There was a restaurant next door to where the concert was, so we were at a table. But, I didn't get a chair. Huge mistake. I was already tired from standing for an hour, then we were waiting to get in. We finally got...

    It wasn't. George Michael, back when he wore the best jeans. Torn with his leather jacket before all the girls were disappointed. I even got a poster. I spent so much money and my best friend and I got to go without parents. It was awesome.
