    First Concert?

    This topic got started on another forum I use and I found it pretty interesting to hear whose all seen what and where.

    I'll start...

    Tool-Cedar Rapids,IA
    Freshman year of high school and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. They had people in full body paint swinging upside down from the ceiling. Extremely trippy but to this day it ranks right up there for me.

    Top three concerts I have been to:

    OAR-Red Rocks
    Matisyahu- Simon Estes, Des Moines
    George Strait-Cowboys Dancehall San Antonio,TX

    Weezer - Hilton - 2002

    We got to Ames super early that day, parked somewhere in the Hilton lot, smoked the small amount of pot we had, and spent the rest of the day wandering around the ISU campus. I was a junior in high school, and it was early May. The campus was absolutely gorgeous that day and it helped cement my decision to go to ISU.

    Top 5 concerts I've been to:
    Rage Against the Machine - Alpine Valley '07
    Drive-By Truckers - Englert Theatre (IC) '07
    The Hold Steady - First Ave '10
    Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals - Hilton '03
    Dave Matthews Band/Ben Harper/My Morning Jacket - Hilton '04, featuring a surprise guest spot by the one and only Neil Young


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Brad Paisley and Eric Church at the State Fair in like 06.

    Top 3 concerts
    Garth Brooks - Kansas City 07
    Jason Boland - Leon 13
    Dwight Yoakam - The Surf 13

    I have been to quiet a few of the past 5 years. I am pretty much over arena concerts, unless it is Garth Brooks I probably won't go. Give me small venue, cold beer, and good music and I am pretty much in heaven.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    I think I am in ImJustKCClone's era......

    August 1976 - 14 years old at Iowa State Fairgrounds. - Bachman Turner Overdrive was the headliner, Heart and Trooper were the warm up bands. It was one of the first concerts for Heart in the US and they had just released their album "Dreamboat Annie". My buddy and I caught whiffs and sights we hadn't seen before........

    Really got me into live music and have seen 100's of live shows since then ranging the spectrum of America, Eagles, Springsteen, Clapton, Genesis, James Taylor, Police, McCartney, U2, Chicago, The Kinks and these days Coldplay (with my kids) and Keith Urban (wife's favorite.)

    Re: First Concert?

    Not sure on the year but it was Alabama at the Jones county fair.

    Other great one's I have been to have been Brooks & Dunn, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley (all at the Jones County Fair), Styx (Ragbrai) and The Eagles (iWireless Center or whatever it is called these days). Going to see Lady A again here in a couple weeks, would LOVE to see Garth or Zac Brown Band.
