I have been going through this rock & roll trip down memory lane with this blog. It started with the vinyl records I found in a box and than last week with the posters. I actually found one more box from my younger days and this one had a ton of concert ticket stubs from over the years. I also found a couple concert T’s and a couple programs as well. I still can’t believe I kept all this stuff, but I am glad I did.
Going to a concert nowadays, they don’t give you a physical ticket anymore. If they do, they charge you for it. Nope, tickets are on your phone and get scanned in or you print it out on your printer. Not the same as those dot matrix printers from the old days.
You also used to stand in line for tickets. You had to arrive an hour or two before the tickets went on sale whether it was hot, cold, raining or snowing. We did it each and every time we wanted to go see a show. And we loved it! Now you go online from the comfort of you home…not the same.
Whether you want to or not, I am going to take you on a journey of my musical concert experiences…at least most of them because I think I am missing quite a few ticket stubs.
Our journey begins back around 1983. I was only 14 years old. My parents finally agreed to let me go to a concert, but I had to go with my sister…REALLY!!! Actually, it was okay. My sister and I have been to many concerts together and even went to one 2 years ago some 3o+ years later.
