Share whatever you want of the milestone

Oct. 2nd 1974. The New York Dolls and Lynyrd Skynyrd in Springfield, Missouri in what Was a bowling alley but I think itís a Church now on Glenstone. Not too far from chestnut expressway. They both blew my mind. Opened up possibilities.

You actually saw AC/DC with Bon Scott? Awesome!

I do kind of hate you now, though. :-)

Was a really cool experience.
Found the ticket and flyer. $15 was a huge cover charge back then.

Soft White Underbelly? Was that a band in the 80's or did Blue Oyster Cult resurrect their original name?


Until I paid $20 to see Pink Floyd at the Atlanta Omni in '88, I never paid more than about $8 to see any band. I've seen about 100 shows. I can remember seeing Uriah Heep & Manfred Mann's Earth Band in 1975 at the St. Petersburg Bayfront Center for $7.50. I have one exception to that statement. I went to 1986 Amnesty Int' Show at the Atlanta Omni for $36 in 1986. However, I saw U2, the Police, Peter Gabriel, Bryan Adams and Lou Reed, each band performed six songs. I didn't complain about the price for a show that big. Then that Saturday I watched the same show live on MTV from Giants Stadium in NY.

Yes and on the song Let There Be Rock, Bon Scott had Angus on his back running through the audience - the cleared isles of course. Will never forget.

Wikipedia is awesome!

Scroll down to tour dates and check December 9th! This actually brought a tear to my eye - incredible! Bon Scott didn't die until 1980 - 3 years later. Wow!

Outlaws, Molly Hatchet, and Van Halen in Portland in 1979. It was an empty former Toys 'R Us so it was just a big open floor, not even any seats. This was Van Halen's first tour and they were awesome. They were all good and I have seen all of them again except for the Outlaws. That guitar army was really fun though!

Indeed. I saw Zep in 1973? 74? And I still remember the ticket - $5.00. Saw Golden Earring in Germany in '80 - $4 Deutsche Marks (around $2.75 American at the time).

I saw Ratt, with Bon Jovi opening, in a small club in Portland in 1984. It was an odd concert because both bands only had one album at the time so they ended up playing a few of their songs a couple of times.

I also spent most of the concert pissed off because my girlfriend at the time was trying to get to the stage so she could kiss Jon Bon Jovi. :-)
