Just for Fun - Concerts
« on: May 04, 2021, 10:17:58 pm »
I know we've had threads on how many places/states people have visited, and growing up in the Detroit area, I was fortunate to be able to see numerous concerts (that's why my hearing is so bad) and that it might be fun to list concerts, broadways shows, etc.,  that you have seen.

In no particular order:

Moody Blues (4x)
Alice Cooper
Bob Seger
Aerosmith
Queen
Fog Hat
Bachman Turner Overdrive
Fleetwood Mac
Barry Manilow
Neil Diamond
Elton John (3x)
Willie Nelson (2x)
Ted Nugent (2x)
Journey
Foreigner
Beach Boys
Rolling Stones
Iggy Pop
Humble Pie
REO Speedwagon (3x)
Eddie Money
Mary Wilson (Supremes)
Production of Hair
Spirit
Pink Floyd
Chuck Berry
Emerson Lake & Palmer
Dave Mason
Yes
John Cougar Mellencamp
Neil Young
Gordon Lightfoot

On my bucket list (doubt that I'll ever make it):

Kid Rock
Keith Urban
Newsboys
Guns 'n Roses
Pink

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

The first Concert I went to was the "1966 Battle of the Bands" put on in a huge circus tent raised on the Gulfgate Mall Parking lot.

Johnny and Edgar Winter won the contest.  There was also "The Moving Sidewalks" and "The Red Crayola" among other groups I have long forgotten.

I've been to a bunch of concerts, but my favorite group was ELP.  I saw them 4 times, once as "Emerson, Lake and Powell."

I miss them.  Keith Emerson took his own live because Carpal Tunnel killed his gift, and Greg Lake died a few months later from cancer.  Carl Palmer has been doing ELP retrospective tours since then, he's in great physical condition and will be with us for a long time.  There are also Tribute Bands like Noddy's Puncture in the UK.  I reckon there won't be any stateside tours.

I attended my share, but the most auspicious was Led Zeppelin's last US concert, in Oakland, in '77. Spent 2 hours standing 25 feet from the amps on the right side of the stage with 110 lbs of girlfriend on my shoulders. Suffering from Tinnitus to this day.

I've attended a lot of concerts and one things is for sure, it can affect your hearing.  I have a 50% hearing loss.  But, I am still glad that I got the chance to enjoy so many concerts.  Growing up in the Detroit are had its advantages.

Ted Nugent cranks it up ...a little bit too much Wango Tango (saw him in my 50's in FL) but we had fun.  After seeing him in concert I knew why in Detroit he was called "The Motor City Madman".

I got Tinnitus from shooting off rifle rounds by the case.  I can't hear well, but I have no regrets.

I had tickets in 1980.  They cancelled.

@skeeter
btw, did you happen to catch the Oakland '77 Pink Floyd show?  It was awesome!

no I did not. I could only afford 1 day on the green show a year in those days!
