i wasn’t allowed to go to concerts as a teenager…was going to finagle a way to go to see led zeppelin in ’80. had it planned out to stay at a friends house the night of the concert. then, just before the tix went on sale, bonham died. i was not a happy camper!
senior year, crystal ship was touring and i was a huge fan of the doors and there was no way i’d get to see them, so, i was GOING to this! told my dad about it and said you better okay it cuz i’m gonna go anyway! he only agreed because the venue was known to be pretty strict about security.
so, first band i saw was crystal ship at the tower theater in 1982. never was big on concerts although i have seen pretty much everyone of real interest. in fact, the half of the pink floyd concert i attended in ’87 or was it ’88? was THE best out of all of them and i was only there for the last half of it!
the last concert i went to was the doors of the 21st century. whodda ever thunk they’d reunite and go on tour? certainly not me! so, that was another must-attend. funny thing, it was also at the tower theater! i don’t remember if it was ’02 or ’03…
