    Kind of off topic, but I remember seeing the cure at the DTE, which is a outdoor venue. The DTE has two stages. A main stage and another on the lawn. Muse were one of the opening acts. They ended up playing under a tent by the parking lot with about 30 or so people watching. While interpol played on the main stage.

    I won't answer because that's one of those secret answer questions. :)

    Quiet Riot in '83, they were just getting popular and opened for Yngwie Malmsteen and Iron Maiden! The start of the Metal Health tour, was awesome. I was 13.

    Not so much a concert as an impromptu gig, but in around 2003ish, Common, Kanye West (just before dropping College Dropout) and an Unsigned John Legend visited a popular record shop in West End (London) called Deal Real and freestyled for about an hour.

    I remember Common wrecking the old Rakim "Paid In Full" beat before introducing Kanye as the next big thing in hip hop. I wasn't really interested in him as I was marking out for Common and I didn't know much about Kanye at the time, but he was actually pretty dope and I instantly became a fan (before he turned into a self-indulgent knob).

    Then John Legend started singing over Biggie's "Juicy" beat and everyone went crazy, then jumped on a keyboard and started covering Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder hits.

    It was pretty awesome and crazy to look back at it when you consider how big Kanye and Legend are now, pretty chuffed that I got to witness two superstars before they were famous, shame I couldn't immortalise the moment, Camera phones were pretty shitty at the time, doesn't stop me from bringing that moment up every chance I can though, lol.

    I'm way too honest. Better inspiration would be this song.






    Damn, that sux. :(

    I saw them that year on the headlining tour the preceded the Priest dates. Can't say enough about how much better the small venue was for them. Don't remember Cinderella either. Think we showed up late (thankfully).



    Too bad Mastodon was probably in their post-crushing phase. That band touring on Remission and Leviathan was something else.

    ZZ Top when Velcro fly came out 85 or 85, then Iron Maiden on Lost somewhere in time tour with Yngwie Malmsteen about the same time. I think The Tubes might have been like 84 though I forget.

    My parents stopped me from going to the Cinderella concert coz they were being assholes.

    I saw Wu Tang and Rage against the machine
    also saw cypress hill with house of pain and funk doobiest

    baked as fuck

    So weird that this popped up in results for a random youtube search I just did (Nothing to do with rap or Chamillionaire)

    The first show i saw was Slapshot at The Rat in Boston in '91. If you mean bigger concerts, then it would be Morrissey in '92.

    Yeah, Steven Tyler was still swigging whiskey on stage and doing backflips off the drum riser at that point. I was more of a Nugent fan going in and bought his tour shirt before the show. Aerosmith turned out the better show that night. Great production and they just rocked the hell out. Nuge was no slouch but Aerosmith just tore it up. Of course that was before they started writing a bunch of shitty ballads.

    LOL, naw. I saw Floyd on the Division Bell tour the next summer at Mile High stadium in Denver. Rage was amazing though. Small venue too. Less than 1,000 people.
