    Having been woken up by DD this morning, bounding with excitement over having got Jonas Brothers tickets, it took me back to the first concert I went to as a teenager - AC/DC.

    So, what was the first concert you went to?

    I was deperate to go to an Osmonds concert in my younger teens but was not allowed. Saw Three Degrees at a nightclub in my late teens - does that count? God, showing my age here!

    Kylie! I was 9 years old and it was her first ever tour in the uk, me and my friend had matching t-shirts made and had the open top straw hats like on her album cover with ra-ra skirts like in her locomotion video, we thought we were so cool:rotfl:My grandad and her dad took us and I think they enjoyed the eye candy as much as we enjoyed bopping around:cool1:

    I HAD THEM! I too was a BROS-ette (oh god, I feel old)

    My first was (I am ashamed to say) FIVE STAR and the Bristol Hippodrome

    Shortly followed by Chesney Hawkes (even more embarrasing) :rotfl:

    I went to see Adam and the Ants at the Apollo Theatre in Manchester.
    I was about 14 at the time, myself and a group of friends dressed up in our frilly shirts and pantaloons and painted a white stripe across our faces :rotfl2:

    Mine was Queen in an outdoor gig at Cardiff castle (1975 I think) along with Andy Fairweather Low and Manfred Mann's Earth Band.
