The Eagles at the Coliseum. 1974. My second concert would have been The Rolling Stones, i think in 1976. But i sold my tickets to my boss for $40, i believe they cost $8 each. I’m still mad i did that. (Never have seen The Stones.)

My first was the Jeff Beck Group, Argent and Foghat, who were on their first American tour, for $3.50. Wasn't Jeff's most productive period but I still remember a version of 'Plynth (water down the drain)' that was deafening even in the balcony.
My 2nd was Pink Floyd doing stuff from 'Dark side...' before the record was released. That one set me back $4.00.

The same week I went to Birdland and saw Miles playing with Cannonball and Coltrane but I forget who was on bass and piano. An embarrassment of riches!

Kate Wolf back in the 70's. Long since gone. Magical voice.

Luciano Pavarotti back around 1980. Damn him.....made me cry like a little girl. He had such a commanding presence!
