I worked with .38 Special a few times, great Southern boogie!

 

I was lucky enough to work with Tom Petty once, when he was very young and promoting their 2nd album, You're Gonna Get It.  They were opening for the J. Geils Band in a 2400 seat theatre that I managed on Long Island.  We knew that it wouldn't be long before he and The Heartbreakers would be the headliners.

 

In July of 2017, my sons treated me to seeing Petty at Forest Hills stadium on what would be his final tour.

Never saw the Moody Blues, unfortunately, but I saw Jimmy Buffett as the opening act for Eagles on their original Hotel California tour in the mid-70s.  Buffet was promoting the Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Atittudes album and the birth of "Maragitaville!"

August 1968 at the Singer Bowl in Flushing Meadows (the 64 World's Fairgrounds): Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin with Big Brother And The Holding Company, the Chambers Brothers and the Soft Machine. Not a bad evening...

@MaVolta triggered a forgotten memory for me. It was the late 80's and I was in California for a business trip (either San Fran or San Diego, I cant remember) I had come up to my room to change for a gathering I didn't really want to go to when I heard this singing outside. I realized that it sounded like the Moody Blues. I went out to my balcony and realized it really WAS the Moody Blues! Having a concert somewhere within ears distance. I changed into my pj's, grabbed a glass of wine and sat out on the balcony and listened to their beautiful music. I, also have always loved the Moody Blues. I guess this should really be my number one choice- a great band and it was FREE lol

I haven't been to a lot of concerts, and mostly from 90's and beyond. One of the best was Jimmy Buffett. He was in Houston at an outdoor arena about 12 or so years ago. There's no way that you go to a Jimmy Buffett concert and not have a great time!

 

Another good one was The Moody Blues. They were in Austin probably late 90's. Always loved that band!

I've been lucky to see some great bands....although I wish I had seen Tom Petty...RIP!

 

I can reflect on how BOSTON back in late 70's early 80's was absolutely amazing but I would have to admit the one I had the best time at would probably be .38 Special....man they can get the crowd to their feet dancing, singing...What some good times!!!  In all fairness just about every time I went, some I seen 2 or 3 times, each show was unique in it's own way. 

 

I hope this will be an interesting thread as it goes on....thanks for posting!
