    Do I win for worst first concert?
    You win the booby prize for worst first concert:

    I'm pretty sure I do. It was supposed to have been Hall & Oats but the baby sitter cancelled at the last second and my parents made me (the 8 year old) babysit my younger sister. I would have loved that claim to fame!

    My first, however, was a few years later when I was 12. 

    Milli Vanilli and I loved every second of that show!! It was my first... how was I supposed to know they were lip synching?
    They were lip syncing to lip syncing. How very Derrida.

    I have all their albums on vinyl.

    I had tickets to see them when I was like 11 years old. They cancelled the tour because they were about to get exposed as fakes.

    I usually tell people Tragically Hip, but really it was Snow.  Like the guy that sang Informer and Lady with the Red Dress. Back in the early 90's in Edmonton.

    Hip was #2 though, and AC/DC #3.

    That is so cool. I wish I had a tour shirt. I remember that Young MC was supposed to be the opening act.

    I was so disappointed when we called TicketLink and they told my mom that the show was cancelled.

    The reason they gave was.... "Milli Vanillii went back to Germany"?   like WTF?  found out a few months later that they we imposters.  they were my faves over Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul and Tone' Loc and Fine Young Cannibals. :lol:

    Well, look at it this way- they're shows are sort of famous... or infamous that way!

    A festival, Milton Keynes Bowl. I was 15 and wanted to see U2, but I really did see The Alarm and Billy Bragg. Oh, and Fun Boy Three. They were fab. Was on the same trip to London.

    Charlie Daniels Band and Alabama at the Hampton Coliseum I think 84. Went with my mom would have been 9 or 10. You could smoke indoors back then and my mom made a woman put it out I've never forgotten that.

    Just as a side.. isn't it sort of interesting how their music has been banished?! I understand why but really kind of weird to think about.  Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe they ever play their songs on the radio anymore.  A "Grammy award winning" artist with several greatest hits that people in the next generation have no clue existed. Just had me thinking about how strange it was today. Do they still play them anywhere? Maybe Germany? Not where I live/have lived.

    I went to see the Smashing Pumpkins in Indianapolis back in 2015. after the concert my friend and I stopped by a bar to order some late night food. They were playing Milli Vanilli. turns out is was a kinda hipster/gay bar. That is probably the first time I heard them in public since the early 90s.

    Just as a side.. isn't it sort of interesting how their music has been banished?! I understand why but really kind of weird to think about.  Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe they ever play their songs on the radio anymore.  A "Grammy award winning" artist with several greatest hits that people in the next generation have no clue existed. Just had me thinking about how strange it was today. Do they still play them anywhere? Maybe Germany? Not where I live/have lived.
    Their music is still on streaming platforms, so not banished and I think younger people probably stumble upon it, but it is pretty damned dated music, so interest probably wouldn't be too high even if they hadn't been shamed. The reason I can still enjoy their hits is mostly because of the nostalgia factor.

    It is funny how dated 80s and early 90s pop sounds. I still prefer it over the new shit they call pop music. Teddy Riley pretty much ruined R&B pop music with new jack swing. after that everything had to have a hip hop beat to it. now it all sounds once you throw in that vocoder/pitch correction shit.

    Yeah, some of it anyway. Though not all. Like MJ - his music doesn't seem dated at all to me; it's still totally relevant IMHO. Same with a few other massive pop albums, like George Michael Faith or INXS KICK. Those still totally hold up I think! :) Milli Vanilli? Not so much, lol, along with the likes of Tiffany and Paula Abdul. Not to say I don't still enjoy listening to those, but only because I remember listening to them as a kid, not because it's damn fine music that has withstood the test of time.

    It's definitely dated but I have to say Girl You Know It's True Remix has a killer beat. Blasted it on my car stereo for reasons of nostalgia last Friday and was like damnnn! Had me hooked.
