Concerts I Have Seen

 

There has been a #myfirstconcert hashtag going around Twitter. I tossed in my entry on Friday, and @Pete_Brown mentioned some of his favorite concerts from back in the day. Pete’s tweets got me thinking about concerts I have seen over the years. So, over the weekend I compiled a list (to the best of my recollection). I don’t think I have missed any, but I’ll update the list if I think of any others.
