RE: What was your first concert?
Ahhhh....Terry...you have me beat my friend
Many, many moons ago, I had the chance to go see Blackfoot. I didnt. I went shagging some girlfriend at the time
(I was led astray
Blackfoot never came back to Manchester, UK. I think they played Monsters of Rock that year too. Didn't make that either. They split the following year. Not seeing them when I had the chance is a big regret of mine....
HOWEVER.... my first concert...the first live band I saw was Praying Mantis. I had idea why they were playing. What is a support band? You mean two bands play tonight?? I was THAT new to concerts...
Mantis were opening for non other than Iron Maiden!!. Paul Dianno was singing, Dennis Stratton was on ryth/guitar, and Eddie was just a masked man. But it were as cool as f**k!!!! It was a return fall visit supporting their debut album and Sanctuary was in the charts and on Top Of The Pops....I was 14 at the time.
Just to throw this in...my first TS concert was at the Ashton Metro Theatre. Wish I could remember the date. I think it was April 12th...1983 maybe? Could have been '82.
The Metro was an old cinema. It was very cramped, sweaty.....AND....I just found the pictures!!! They are not very good quality. Taken with an old 110 mm pocket camera. If somebody can tell me how to put them up on the Slamboard, I will do so. I also found some Donnington pics and a couple from Hammersmith, just before Stay Hungry came out.
