Question of the day – What was your first concert?

So, the Michael Jackson post turned into a discussion about musical preferences, and it made me get a little nostalgic.  I attended my first concert in 1977 when I was 11-years-old in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  The artist was the incomparable “talk box” artist, Peter Frampton.  “Do you feel like I do,” was his signature song at the time, and I was chomping at the bit to see how he made that guitar talk.  I remember being really irritated that he actually played other songs.  My tastes diverged into the Southern Rock, Blues, and Pop arena shortly thereafter, so obviously the experience did not shape my musical preferences.

How about it?  What was your first concert experience?  Did it shape your listening habits for the rest of your life?  While you are perusing memory lane, here’s a little taste of Mr. Talk Box himself:
