First concert I ever went to was Iron Maiden in 1987. During the break between opening act Vinnie Vincent and Maiden, two amorous teenagers walked over to the unused seats in the upper bowl, behind and to the side of the stage. They start making out (maybe even banging). A tech picked up on it and shined the spotlight on them. The crowd cheered.

Was at a small venue, about three years ago, to see Anthrax and Slayer. I'm not a big Slayer fan, so I'm in the bathroom taking a leak during their set. Tom Araya shouts: "you wanna' have some fun. This next song is... WAR ENSEMBLE"! Guy next to me immediately starts going "oh shit! Oh shit", stops in mid-stream (I'd imagine) and sprints back out to the crowd while zipping up.

In the summer of 1990, went to a WWF house show. On the way out, we're walking to the parking lot and have to cross by the "players' gate". A rental car comes out, with Honky Tonk Man in the back seat. Some random fan yells: "Hey, it's Honky! Let's get him!" Honky's eyes got real big and he immediately locks the door and the car peels out.

About two years ago, I was at the World Baseball Classic in the Miami Marlins stadium. USA vs. Dominican Republic with a sold-out crowd. A lot of Dominicans in the place and they were THE most enthusiastic fans I've ever been around. "Si, se puede" was their rallying cry. I'm standing in the left field concourse when Nelson Cruz hits a big home run. Some random Dominican dude, next to me, jumps up in the air, rips his shirt off, then high-fives and hugs me.
