White Zombie, February 1993. Limelight NYC, fought through one heck of a snowstorm to get there, and if anyone knows the Limelight it was the perfect place for a White Zombie Concert.
Moshing to Thunder Kiss '65, drinking beers (they served me) and watching the hot strippers in the cages above the dance floor.
I was 17 at the time, the concert was on a Sunday night (actually started after Midnight). I got home the next morning at 7AM, school started at 7:30 AM so me and my friend Bill (who went to the concert with me) drove straight from the NJ Transit train station to school all bombed , sweaty and tired as heck.
Thankfully because of all the snow there was a two hour delayed opening, so we went home, I slept for two hours took a shower and went to school at about 10Am sporting my White Zombie t-shirt and all sorts of stories.

Judas Priest @ The Palladium in NYC 6/80...18 years old. Excellent show with the band at their peak.
I did attend a 'Chicago' show a few years before that, albeit at a local college (I guess they were past their peak by then ), and I was tagging along with some people who had an extra ticket...it wasn't really my kind of music, but I figured, "what the hell?" File that under the "a bad day fishing beats a good day at work" category.

Billy Idol, Long Beach Convention Center, March 1984. It was his "Rebel Yell" tour. I was 15 years old.
I saw him in 2001 twice, first at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas and again in November of the same year at House of Blues in Anaheim. I guess you could say I'm a huge fan. Billy's still got it, he sounded and looked great!
The best part about these concerts was that I went with my same girlfriend from high school. We went to his 84 show and many other concerts after that. It was just like old times!

That would be Midnight Oil at Roskilde Festival 1990 - I was 8, and got in on a free ticket since my parents were working there. Now, I'm working there myself, so my most recent would be Björk who closed the Festival last Sunday.

Sleeper supported my Silversun, and Mansun at Portsmouth Guildhall back in 1996 on the It Girl Tour. They were brilliant.
Tori Amos live same venue same year.
Inspiral Carpets in March this year at Brixton Academy.
The Levellers supported by Audioweb live at Exeter Uni in 1999- they were nothing short of blinding - truly the best live act ive ever seen bar none.

Shed Seven (and lots of lesser names), at some university gig in about 1996.
One of my friends was at the university, arranging the event, and hired me to help out with lighting... a day's work in return for an handful of cash, a free concert (backstage access, of course), and an endless supply of drunk students. Sounds like a fair deal to me, it's just a shame that some of the people on stage were complete &)'*=(§#s.

Queen on December 4, 1977. I was 11 years old.
A road trip from Pittsburgh to Dayton, Ohio in the snow to see the concert and visit Wright-Patterson AFB Museum. I love Queen (I was already a big fan) and the XB-70 to this day!
Amazing show, but my biggest lasting mental image of the show is the odd glow from within the marijuana bowl that the loser next to me tried to pass to me. (I was 11 forcryinoutloud!) The show was at the arena at the U. of Dayton and the whole thing became one HUGE bong; completely filled with smoke.
