My First Concert Experience
I know we all have one, for me it was back in 1983, it was the Shout At The Devil/Bark At The Moon tour with Motley Crue and Ozzy Osbourne.
What makes this show so significant was not only the fact that it was Ozzy and Motley but how it happened.
It was one of those moments that I look back on fondly due to the fact that my dad took me and it was a total surprise! Yep I said my dad, he is the person responsible for my love of music and especially rock music.
As the story goes, my dad asked me if I wanted to go to the local record store and of course I said yes! As we were on our way to the store we missed the exit for the store and I said to my dad, "You missed the exit", in which he responded, "We aren't going to the record store" and he produced a pair of tickets from his shirt pocket and said, "We are going to see Ozzy". I swear I wanted to cry with joy! It was truly a moment that I will cherish forever!
The other bonus was that after that show my dad said to me, "From now on you can go to these with your friends", it was a little loud! So it was a win, win! By far my favorite concert experience!
What was yours?
