We saw the same show at the Shoreline, in Mountain View -- GREAT Show! It was amazing how the washing machines fit right in with the show.

November 7, 1987
Providence Civic Center
Providence, RI

RUSH!
It was the Hold Your Fire tour and I was just as pumped for that show as I am today when they come around. The only difference now is the price of the ticket - then 18.50, now around 85.

The first concert I ever went to was Janis Joplin with Big Brother & The Holding Company.....simply fabulous (I can still hear her singing in my head). I have been to other great concerts too....I'll be back with a list of some of them....which will surely relegate me to the old/teetering on Alzheimers category.

Loggins and Messina (before Kenny threw his integrity in the rubbish bin). With some guy I'd never heard of as the opening act.
Leo Kottke. No singing, just vaseline machine gun finger-pickin'for a straight hour. Whoaaaaah....

1972, Cowtown Ballroom, Kansas City, MO. $5.00 maybe $5.50

Best concert: 1973 Babe Ruth, the headliner cancelled. Damn. Had to listen to this opening band I'd never heard of for the whole night:

Genesis! Selling England By The Pound tour.
Phil Collins played his ass off and didn't sing a bloody word (thank God). Peter Gabriel was ON.

I can't believe I would even admit this BUT....1974 (I was 11) Bay City Rollers! Yeah! S-A-T-U-R D-A-Y NIGHTS! I did, however, see Harry Chapin with my folks when I was about 9 - not too long before he died.

John Schneider (yep Bo Duke from Dukes of Hazzard) was my first concert. I was 8 years old and it was at Magic Mountain. My Mom had won tickets and I was a HUGE fan. I think I still have one of his LP's

Summer 1979, San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium (now called Qualcomm)

Blue Oyster Cult
Cheap Trick
UFO
Pat Travers

Quite mindblowing being young and impressionable, and seeing all of that for a first concert!
