Edit - It’s been pointed out that the title means something different in the US so by gig I mean concert or show you watched: A lot of discussion in the 60s & 70s rock thread ended up talking about first concerts, So I thought I’d start a thread: My first one was Genesis at Guildford Civic Hall. I think it was 1980. I was 13 and headed down from school. Tickets were £3.50 and the venue was small enough and all standing to get with 20 foot of the stage. Phil Collins lived about 3 miles down the road in a village called Shalford at the time and Chartehouse School (where they originally formed) was about 5 or 6 miles away so this was a hometown gig. I think Rutherford lived pretty close too. Anyway, being swayed around in the hot crowd to songs I’d been listening to for years (plus Duke, which they’d just released), started a fire. For the next 10 years I always headed for the mosh pit.
