My first concert was this Finnish metal/rock-festival Nummirock, in 1998. I was 12 at the time. I remember seeing Slayer, Pantera, Children Of Bodom, Dream Theater, Stratovarius, Sentenced, Tarot, HIM, The Hellacopters and D-A-D. There were a bunch of other artists, but I can't remember anything about their gigs. Most probably, because they are the kind of artists I don't really care about. But anyways, it was a fucking awesome experience. My first, last and only chance to see Pantera too!

My first ever gig was back in the early / mid 70's at Southport Theatre .

Mud topped the bill , and the support group was Jigsaw .

Well I was young and into Glam Rock , that's my excuse .

Styx last year was my first "real" rock concert, but I have seen Trans-Siberian Orchestra two years and running.
