My first at age 13 was Alice Cooper, Welcome to my Nightmare tour, still top 3 concert for me, again at Penns Peak few yrs ago.
My 2nd concert , Pink Floyd, Dark Side Moon tour and again Animals tour.
Some guy sold my buddy 2 tickets for Pink Floyd in '75. We were at the trolly stop on Erie Ave when this guy decided he wanted to buy back the tickets. My buddy & I ran away from him, jumped on a trolley a few stops away and off to the Spectrum. We ended up sitting with his pals! :shock:

2x Alice Cooper
2x Pink Floyd
3x Yes
Jethro Tull
Black Sabbath
Lynyrd Skynard
Ted Nugent

Almost every concert I saw was at the Spectrum in Phila. Saw a bunch more but can't quite remember. :)
Had tickets for Led Zepplin but than they cancelled when Plant's son suddenly died.

My first concert was Pink Floyd in '72 or '73. Wasn't a fan then or now, just went because I was a musician/music fan. Probably watched the crowd more than the band. Since then have seen far to many to list or remember. Some highlights would be Black Sabbath with Ozzy just before they broke up in '79. AC/DC with Bon Scott. Johnny Winter in his hey day. 2 of my all time favorite shows-Rory Gallagher, both amazing shows. Kiss 5 or 6 times. Aerosmith many times. Another favorite was Montrose, Foghat, and Black Oak Arkansas triple bill.Ted Nugent mid 70's touring with the Stranglehold album. Blue Oyster Cult 4 times (at least). Motley Crue and Whitesnake. In the 70's tickets were only 5 or 6 bucks. We would go to concerts just for something to do. And the list goes on. Now the only band I shell out the outragous ticket prices for is Alice Cooper. I try to catch him on every tour if possible. Just saw him about a month ago on opening night of his new tour. Great show as usual. Best part was free tickets and a free room at the casino he played. Gotta love that.

Glad to see BOC came up alot on this thread, my 1st Concert was Blue Oyster Cult and the Babies(Tom Wait) .

Some of the more interesting:
Eagles/Heart/Little River Band. 1980 Yale Bowl. Joe Walsh did 4 Oncores, prolly the bestest show IMO.
Interesting Note, there has never been another concert at the Yale Bowl due to the crowd and following behavior. ( even Paul McCartney was denied permission 15yrs later).

Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Joe Walsh came out during the Oncore to do Rocky Mountain Way with Stills ( Steve did a cover on his live album so it was a tribute sorta)

Thin Lizzy @ Agora Ballroom West Hartford Ct. , Chinatown tour with Snowy White on Lead. Phil lynot died shortly after.

Todd Rundgren @ Stage West (aka Agora Ballroom) unloaded cases of beer back stage for the band and was invited back to the tour bus to meet Todd and Kasim Sultan of Utopia.

Steppenwolf @ the now long defunct Rocky Point Amusement Park. Standing in a crowd that was parted for a beat up Catalina to pass through when noticed John Kay in the back seat. I couldn't resist mocking him about his "Ride" to his face..... much to his chagrin as well the people's around me laughing along.

I'm sure sure I forget some, but of note:
Charlie Daniels
Greg Allman Band
J. Geils
Eight to the Bar
Crosby Stills and Nash (without Neil)

I was always more of a small club scene than big Shows, so my list is alot less than most.
