First real concert was seeing the Offspring on the Splinter tour.

Last concert was watching Irish rock band The Answer, who were one of the best bands I've ever seen, and any classic rock fan should check out:

First was this radio festival "edge fest": i saw The Tragically Hip, Sloan, Our Lady Peace, Finger 11, Jersey, Thornly.

Last, i suppose was The Offspring/Frank Turner/Pennywise this summer: although i'll be seeing Henry Rollins and Against Me! this week (separate shows).

This is actually a pretty sweet thread topic.

My first concert was Green Day on the American Idiot tour on Halloween 2004 with Sugarcult and New Found Glory.

My most recent were Good Luck with Beast Infection (both were opening for The Max Levine Ensemble, but I did not stay for them) last week, and I played a concert with my band a few days before then.

My first concert was Iron Maiden in 2003, besides small local bands. After that, I've been to an enormous amount of concerts, but the last one was Zeromancer.

My first concert was Green Day playing Milton Keynes back in 2005.
My most recent concert was The Offspring playing in London last August.

I really need to get another concert lined up to look forward to, it's been ages!

First concert is pretty embarassing. Went to see Busted in around 2003. But hey, I was 13...valid excuse right?:o:o

Last concert was The Offspring last year. I think anyway.

jacknife -- are you seeing Henry Rollins do spoken word or seeing the Henry Rollins band? I'm kind of intrigued.

Spoken word.

The venue is at a church too. And not even in the basement, they apparently set the stage up right by the altar.... it's going to be an interesting night to say the least.

There's a church in Philly that hosts shows in the basement, side-chapel and the big area with the pews depending on how popular the band is. It's a pretty cool venue.

Anyway, the first concert I saw might have been Weird Al...I think the second was Offspring. I was SUPPOSED to see Miss Li the other night, but found out after traveling to NYC that the show was canceled.

The venue turned out to be pretty nice. Rollins was also great: the dude just went off for like three hours: i'd recommend that if anyone gets the chance to see him live, take it.

And Against Me! killed the other night, so good. If anyone who is a bit unsure of the new album, check them out live, the songs sound a lot different. And they played "Baby I'm an Anarchist" during the encore,which probably made my entire month.

First rock/pop* concert: Goo Goo Dolls with Vanessa Carlton and Third Eye Blind (summer 2002)

Last rock/pop* concert: Rilo Kiley (summer 2009)
also, Glazy - a Czech rock band which kinda sucked a few months ago.

*I specified because I've seen countless classical and jazz concerts, but I doubt anyone would know any of who I've seen and I don't even remember the first one I went to :P

Most recent - Social Distortion. It's the only show I'm proud of going to. It was my most recent one although it was in April 2007. That was an awesome show. Mike Ness even invited me and some of my friends in the front row up on stage and talked about how when they came to Victoria 20 years ago, they'd be ridiculed by us for looking how they did, but that now we were going to his shows or something. I can't exactly remember what it was. Also I got to talk to the crowd a bit but I don't remember what I said again lol. The coolest "merch" I picked up that night though, was when I was walking off stage, I saw one of Mike Ness' guitar picks lying there, so I picked it up. I wasn't sure if it was his pick until he threw the one he was playing with to my friend and we matched them and they were the same. I still have it and it's framed with my ticket from that night.

The other ones I'm kinda embaressed about... but I had no choice but to go to them so I didn't go of my own free will haha. They are

My first concert ever was Avril Lavigne, 2 times, both for my sister's birthdays. I hate myself :P
Nickelback once because my parents won tickets on the radio.

Also I know the next concert I'll be going to will be awesome. I's my friend who raps, and he's going to be doing some new songs at a camp I go to this May. I'm especially excited because he sent me a message on Facebook and invited me to play guitar while he raps for a song or two, so I'll be part of the show :D
