The year was 1987. The day was June 17th. The bands were Madness and Fine Young Cannibals. This was the first concert with a famous band that I went to. I remember it quite well because I was living in Iceland at the time and not very many bands ventured over there due to the small population and probably cost of going with all their equipment. Madness had reduced their concert appearances at that time but thought Iceland was an interesting place and "had heard the Icelandic audience was quite lively" so they came :) Madness pictured below as they arrived in Iceland that morning:
I had never heard of Fine Young Cannibals before and they turned out to be quite good. I purchased their album following the concert and really loved it. I have used their song "She drives me crazy" as a ring tone for my phone for years now. Good stuff!
So, what was the first band concert you went to and when?
Lets make it a great Thursday!
