    Congratulations on seeing your first live rock show. My first concert was Billy Joel in 1990. I've been hooked on concerts ever since.

  2. Scott says:

    Woo-hoo! Congrats. (Me: Yes, 1983. Arrgh!! Too long ago.)

  3. WOW!!!!!!!! How wonderful!!!!Love those great pix!!!. (I never went to one…did you wave those little glow-sticks like they do in the movies?)

  4. Emjay says:

    Oooh! Lucky you. I went to my first one so long ago that I have forgotten who it was – the band is most likely forgotten too LOL. I'm not big on crowds but I have put the fear aside for David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel, Elton John and Prince ….. I saw AC/DC and the Eurythmics (called Tourists then) in pubs in Sydney before they were famous. There are others but my memory is not what it was … LOL.

  5. Purplesque says:

    🙂 That is my biggest fear. I don't want to get hooked on concerts, they are darned expensive.

  6. Purplesque says:

    🙂 I was three years old in 1983. 2008 is a bit too late to get started, but I'm really glad we did this. (They did not even play my favorite song, A Rush of blood to the head.)

  7. Purplesque says:

    Thank you!People were waving cellphones. I remember wondering how fast glow-sticks replaced lighters and cellphones replaced glowsticks. 🙂

  8. Purplesque says:

    Wow, that's a lot of shows! I would love to see Billy Joel in concert..and I would Die to see Floyd or NIN..maybe someday. 🙂

  9. Lakshmi says:

    "underwhelming"? goodness, just seeing your still photographs makes me want to curl under the cot.

  10. Purplesque says:

    Oh, it was a great show in terms of the crowd and noise levels. I just meant that I didn't feel moved at a personal level..most of their music seems to have lost its connection with me.

  11. Grimfairy says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I missed out on tix both time here in Philly. They sold in like 1 minute! Looks like a blast!

  12. Purplesque says:

    It was fun, certainly. I only got the tickets because the show was re-scheduled and I started haunting eBay months before the actual date.

  13. James says:

    I
    just
    want to emphasize the good work on this blog, has excellent views and a
    clear
    vision of what you are looking for.
