The first concert I ever attended was Chalk Circle at the Ontario Place Forum. I couldn't tell you the year, but I'm guessing it was 1985 or 1986.
The Ontario Place Forum was pretty cool at the time for two reasons. They had a revolving stage and admission was free once you paid your way into Ontario Place. They tore the Forum down in the mid 90s when the Amphitheatre showed up and it's a damn shame.
Chalk Circle won an award from CFNY for being the most promising non-recording artists in 1985 and they went on to have a few minor radio hits. I see a Chalk Circle greatest hits album was even released last year. Chalk Circle becoming my first concert had more to do with timing and circumstance than a passionate love for their music, but for all eternity they'll be my first.
What was your first concert?
