    Are you talking strictly national acts in large venues or do local bands in club/pub/bars count?

    Damn, your mom sounds cool as shit.

    My first concert was in '83, Journey on the Frontiers tour with Bryan Adams as an opener. Great show as I recall.

    I discovered Maiden shortly thereafter and my tastes changed a bit but good music is good music.

    Chili Peppers in 96, thought it was awesome but now know they suck live for such a huge band.

    Pitchshifter

    Ya, that would have been at the CNE which meant better facilities than a farm in Oakville.

    This one is a little embarrassing but I think it was Mushroomhead and Lamb of God opened (they were still Burn the Priest at the time). I think I was a HS freshman.

    I've seen KMFDM live two or three times. Fucking amazing show each time.

    That was my first NIN tour. Caught them initially in Indianapolis on 4-20-2000 and then again in St. Louis I think. Epic shows.

    I've gone on to see NIN a total of I think 8 times.

    My mom saw Michael Jackson live when she was pregnant with me. That obviously doesn't count, but it's kind of neat. I saw Peter, Paul and Mary when I was really little. First proper concert was Skynyrd/ZZ Top at the United Center in 1999.

    I want to say I saw Zombie again with Godsmack?
    Or was it on the Black Sabbath reunion tour.. I know Mudvayne was on that one for sure.

    I will have to look it up. Awesome memories with my dad are kind of blurring together.

    Eminem at Milton Keynes bowl. It was a complete nightmare getting there and back but was worth it. Saw D12, Exibit, OB Trice and Cypress Hill as well. Cypress Hill were the best on the day
