I remember that show .... about a week before Christmas I think it was. My
Ex Wife's sister bought us the tickets as a Christmas present and gave them
to us early so we could go. Hell of a show that night !

Rollins' third show with the band. He crawled around on the floor in a mixture of broken glass and beer. There was a riot on the beach afterwards, police everywhere.

I was 15 years old.

Brenda Lee at Eielson AFB in Alaska. She was doing a USO tour,
I think it was 1961 and it cost 50 cents.

I've been asked this before, and I honestly cannot remember, although I am certain that it was at the coliseum. Maybe the Isley Brothers, around '77, or it could have been KISS before that.

myself "Why in the hell was everyone acting that crazy over these guys" ? Their
music was good but I couldn't understand the screaming, fainting crying and the
fanatical rush to the stores to buy their albums and paraphernalia the way most
of the country did. I got more into the Byrds and the Stones when they first
hit the charts than I did the Beatles ..........Until I got into my early and mid
teens. I started to realize what a FORCE these guys were, and what they had
done to the Rock Music industry. By then they had stopped touring and were
slowing falling apart as a band from personal issues. Wish there was a way
I could have gone to that concert in Atlanta and seen them that one time.
At the time watching them on TV and seeing the girls go crazy and passing out I thought was fake. In the ball park they were climbing over the walls and trying to run to the stage. The girls were passing out and everyone was screaming and the heads were gyrating. I could not believe it was real.

I feel like I've posted this before but I think mine was unfortunately Foreigner on the '4' album tour...that 'Jukebox Hero' nonsense...in what I believe was 1981...holy shit was that a long time ago.

Opening act was Bryan Adams at the very beginning of he second album tour. The album before he became a house hold name with the 'Run to You' , 'Summer of 69' stuff.

I hated it...it did absolutely nothing for me...except...this was the first time I had experienced a 'rock concert'. The people watching, the girls, the juice, the first time the house lights go down and the band hits the stage and you get/feel that buzz.

Since then I have seen hundreds of live shows...I couldn't even begin to try and list them all...all over the country...big and small and everything in between...and there is still something about the whole thing that releases all the right chemicals in my brain.

My dad is really into music and took me to a lot of concerts right around 1991-92 when I turned 11-12. Can't remember the first exactly, but I'll say McCartney at Billy-brice in 92 I think. I also saw Moody blues and the Allman brothers right about that time. Great intro to music.

Biggest miss was Front row tickets at the north Charleston coliseum for the Eagles hell freezes over tour (1994) that I wasn't allowed to go to do to a bad grade that semester in high school. He went with someone else and sat 3 feet from Felder.

I got to see the eagles two more times including the weekend after I graduated USC at the claw, but not in the front row. What a miss.
