Don't Tell My Heart...

Listening to the radio the other day, the announcers were discussing their first concerts.  I couldn't help but think back to my first concert.

It was 1993, which put me in the 3rd grade.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was in town.
I wore my red cowgirl boots.

And who did I see?

Oh yes.

The Astrodome was full of girls, screaming every time Mr. Cyrus opened his vest.
Of course, I just wanted to hear him sing "Achy Breaky Heart."
But don't get me wrong- I had his whole cassette tape memorized...

What was your first concert?

Too freaking funny! My first concert was Tiffany, who had New Kids on the Block opening up for her! There's some really awful photos here http://www.clickthegoodnews.com/2009/10/14/concert-time/

and now I get tons of creepers from Europe on my blog searching for kids and panty/hose!

Lynyrd Skynyrd & Steppenwolf at the Allegan County Fair {read: my small town's biggest event of the year.}

Billy Ray is a good one!

My first concert that I actually paid money to go see was Jason Aldean! Lol I was obviously concert deprived until then. Well no, not exactly. I went to a lot of free ones at festivals. But I can't remember the first free one I went to.

That is an awesome first concert!!! My first was The Guess Who (These Eyes, American Woman) at our fair with my parents when I was 13.

Jessica Renee said...

N*Sync!! I waited in a three hour line for those tickets and wound up in the second to the last row of the balcony of our arena. But I was the most excited 12 year old to get to go!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I believe mine was Switchfoot at the state fair when I was 18. My first real concert was 3 Doors Down.

Oh my GOD. Love this! My sister and I were obsessed with him & my drill team even had a choreographed dance to this. My first concert was Spice Girls! :)

MK said...

I'm pretty certain that my first concert was 98 Degrees headlining at a concert festival at a sub base. That was embarrassing.

Wiz said...

Those were the good ol days. Nothing like an awesome mullett! My first concert was NKOTB baby!

Amber said...

My first round of concerts were put on by the local radio station, B93. Every year they get a bunch of artists together for a free show. I think the first one (20yrs ago) was Sawyer Brown. My first actual concert though, like as in I had purchased a ticket, was Aerosmith when I was 12... Best Christmas Gift Ever!
My mom went to see Billy Ray at the Allegan County Fair one year (Same Fair that Emily mentioned) and I remember my sister being so mad she couldn't go... too funny!!

Jules said...
