I attended my first ever live rock concert on April 22, 1974. I was 18 years old. The semi-local band Kansas was the opening act for Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band at The Cowtown Ballroom (a venue of whose provenance I was completely ignorant at the time).
I was unemployed, living with my mom in Raytown and had lots of time to call DJ's at local radio stations trying to win tickets. I was able to barter my 2 free tickets into a ride to the concert (because young losers with no job and living with their mom's generally don't have cars).
I only managed to save a handfull of ticket stubs from the many concerts I have attended since.
Which ones can you correctly identify? Which ones were you at? Proove it! Share your memories.
And awaaaaay we go
