Oh yes- I am a child of the 70s...

I saw this over at The Third Estate. Thanks, Abistrista!
What was the first concert you ever went to?

I saw Shaun Cassidy at Cobo Hall in Detroit in 1977 when I was six years old! My 7-year-old friend's mom took us along with her 12-year-old sister (my friend's very young aunt!) I was scared I would fall since I had never been in a stadium before. So what about you? Got anything more dated than that?

I saw an 'oldies' concert at the local arena. I don't remember who was headlining (I think maybe the monkees), but it was like an all day festival thing.

The thing that I really remember is getting these really hard soft pretzels and the guy that liked me tickling me so hard I had bruises (I bruise easily).

OMG! I was in love with Shaun Cassidy when I was 6! :)

I was a late bloomer...my first concert was Rick Springfield in 1983. :)

Okay, fine. How about Jimmy Osmond?
You gotta love "Long-haired lover from Liverpool."

Or the Bay City Rollers. That Leslie was a hottie.
