Ted Nugent, Scorpions, Def Leppard in 1980 (or '81) for $6.50/ticket
AC/DC (Bon Scott) If You Want Blood Tour..oh..and Cheap Trick
Metallica's ..And Justice Tour
Kick Myself for Missing:
Ozzy w/Randy and Armored Saint
UFO and AC/DC ('78?) w/ Schenker and Bon Scott....that one hurts

Oh so many to choose from...

KISS and W.A.S.P. at the Knoxville (TN) Civic Coliseum, 1986 would be real close to the top.

My first of 26 KISS shows was in 1984 and made me cry from joy, because I had been a fan since 1974. Likewise, the first time I got to see them in makeup brought me to tears as well.

Saw an outdoor festival at Starwood Amphitheatre in Nashville (TN) sometime around 1991 or so that featured, in order of appearance, Metal Church, Danger Danger, Motorhead, Alice Cooper, and Judas Priest. Great show.

I remember that show!! It was the Operation Rock N Roll tour, except it was Dangerous Toys instead of Danger Danger. Are u sure you're not confusing the two bands?

I saw that tour in Largo, MD around the same time, and I remember Motorhead not playing cuz Lemmy broke his ribs the day before (boy was I bummed Sad). After the show, my buddy and I drove to Fairfax, VA and spent the night in his car on some empty industrial road, then we went to Lollapalooza the next day. I wouldn't say either show was the best concert I've ever seen, but it was probably my most memorable concert experience.

Could have been. I hated both bands, and endured both at one point or another.

I saw that show too but in NJ at the Meadowlands Arena. I think JP had just wrapped up their DOTF tour or possibly Turbo because I had just seen them a few weeks prior at the same place.

Dude, you're my hero for cathing [b]W.A.S.P.[/b] in 86. I'm assuming this was right before the headline tour for [i]Inside the Electric Circus[/i].

I always had problems convincing my parents to let me go to shows on weekdays, and when ever [b]W.A.S.P.[/b] was in town, it was in the middle of the week.

I finally saw them in a club in Boston with [b]Motorhead[/b] opening. Must have been '97 or so. Although the lineup was different from either of the bands from 85 and 86, [b]Blackie[/b] was still there, and they sounded awesome.

Strange, me too. First Kiss show was in 84 and had been a fan since 76. The reunion was awesome as well.

I remember Blackie drinking the blood from the skull vividly.

Yeah it was the Last Command Tour I'm pretty sure. I physically picked up and moved about half a dozen people to get on the rail for W.A.S.P. Blackie was incredible that show.

been a while since i been here....

I think it was Tora Tora, Bonham opening, but for sure THE CULT was headlining...from band to band the excitment was building, by the time the Cult took the stage it was crazy..this was in Houston.

Ozzfest (when bands were heavy) Type-O Negative, Pantera, Ozzy and Black Sabbath (Ozzy and Sabbath with Ozzy each with full 90 min sets) that was freaking great. Ozzfest does not make it to Houston, so this was in San Antonio.
