Breakin At The Civic
on Van Halen, 1979 Jul 5
I got to this concert a earlier than most, i bought a couple GEN/AD tickets in advance for 10 bux per. My best friend and i was a head of a line that was forming. It was very hot! The line turned into a strong push behind us finally forcing our bodies against the glass,breaking it in front of us, freeing us inside to find a nearby restroom to hide in. We could here outside they secured the area. thankfully the glass broke into tiny bits and nobody was hurt that i knew of. as soon as we heard the doors open, we went to the stage where u could stand. awsome concert but not my best, only because VH was still a little short on material at the time. short concert!
my first concert
on The Allman Brothers Band, 1970 Jun 19
Allman Brothers rocked the house.
I Was There!!!
on Pantera, 1995 Jan 31
Right in the middle of the chaos.Was right beside the dude that punched the freakin' Police horse!!!
Met The Eagles in the elevator.
on Eagles, 1975 May 30
Sharon and I went to the concert, and afterwards we met a friend at the Hilton. Being 19 years old we got restless and rode the elevator to the basement shops(closed at 12:00). When we took the elevator from the basement back to our friend's room on the top floor, the elevator stopped at the lobby and "The Eagles" band members got on. They were so nice, and we tried to be cool(while freaking). They are still my favorite band. If the band reads this just remember the blond and the redhead.
My first concert ever!!!
on Alice Cooper, 1987 Nov 28
Alice Cooper changed my life!!!!!!!
My first metal concert
on Sammy Hagar/Scorpions/Pat Travers, 1979 Nov 3
I remember the Scorps opened for Pat/Sammy and were partially booed off stage (!) but I might be wrong. But everything was monumental for me! Great concert in a great time.
Eat a Peach Tour
on The Allman Brothers Band, 1972 Jul 9
First tour they did without Duane I believe, really good concert.
on Joe Cocker/ Ted Nugent w/Amboy Dukes, 1974 Sep 8
Ted stole the show as he had many times in Mempho. He got busted after one of his shows for jumping off an amp in his loin cloth get up and showed his junk. Ellis was a cool place for us because we knew a way to get down to back stage and under the stage through some fire doors. We would wait until the show was going and look for empty seats down close to the stage or wander around watching the show up close. Security was very minimal back then you could smoke as much as you wanted.
on Eric Clapton /Lynyrd Skynyrd/Foghat, 1974 Jul 28
This was a wild day and night and Skynyrd was the highlight. It was fun being down on the field when everyone was throwing cups and anything else in the air.
on David Bowie, 1972 Sep 24
Bowie wowed us with his effects and kept everyone's attention.
on Yes / The Eagles, 1972 Aug 20
This was a good show, but these groups drew different types of fans. Someone was harassing Jon Anderson between songs saying he could not understand his vocals.
Not sure of the date
on Alice Cooper / Blue Oyster Cult / Chambers Brothers, 1972 May 19
I went to all of the Cooper concerts in Mempho. He he got hung and his head chopped off and all kinds of cool shit. He had a different theme every time and was a great showman.
on Ten Years After/ Cactus, 1971 Apr 11
The acid kicked in and this show seemed to be over in minutes or was it days?
on The Who, 1971 Nov 28
Pete led the guys to an excellent evening for Who fans. He kept jumping in one spot on the stage and broke a plank loose on the stage and I thought he was going to wreck the stage. It was coming up in the air a few feet.
on Cactus, 1971 Jul 4
Rusty and the boys nailed it and the crowd ate it up. They did a free outdoor show a day or two later.
Cactus stole the show
on Deep Purple, 1971 Jul 4
The Cactus was totally down and kick ass before Purple had a chance.
Zep kicked ass
on Led Zeppelin, 1970 Apr 17
I was 15, had a third row seat in front of JP Jones the front row had 2 to 3 people in every seat. Bonzo was a total animal on his solo. Wound up busting his knuckles open when he kept back handing that Zildjian gong. At the end of the show everyone rushed the stage and we were standing on our seats. House lights came on and they played Whole Lotta like that and Plant said the cops were holding a revolver to their managers head and that was it after 3 hours of magic and hash smoke. My ears were ringing for two days.
on ZZ Top, 1976 Jul 4
The opening band that day was The Dixie Dregs. Marshall Tucker was not there and Skynyrd did an awesome job on Freebird one time.
