In this First Concert Ever segment, the country band, Sack of Lions, talks about the story of their first experience with live music. You can check out the story, after the break.
Dan Olsen (lead vocals, guitar) – Brooks and Dunn with Reba McEntire
I remember my friend Jay got an extra ticket so his parents took us to the show. I remember thinking there was no way these people were really singing those songs because they sounded just like the radio. I believe they truly were signing and it was like wow this is what professional musicians sound like. I wanted to be one of the guys in Brooks and Dunn, playing music to arenas full of people. As far as the rest of the band, shockingly these are all true of first concerts.
Dylan Wade (bass) – Sesame Street Live
At the end, the characters came off the stage to meet the families. My dad tried to carry me away before I could talk to Big Bird. I freaked out and punched him in the face. I stand by my decision.
Phil Reno (lead guitar, backing vocals) – Jackson Five Victory Tour
Michael Jackson was everything you wanted him to be. Even in Arrowhead Stadium, he was larger than life.
Dave Collins (drums) – Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine
At the age of 8, I paid attention to two things. Miami Sound Machine auxiliary percussion and Gloria’s sexy dancing.
