Live concerts, regardless of performer(s), is a thrill. Rush being a giant in the rock genre.

It was 1974 or 75, I don't remember which, when myself, Tom and Leslie drove to Seattle in Tom's 1965 442 for the Led Zeppelin concert at the Seattle Center Colosseum.  Tom wanted to park in a secure location so we parked in a downtown parking garage and took the monorail to the Colosseum.

 

It was festival seating and thanks to a friendly cop got we got put at the front of the line before the doors opened. He could see we were not into the craziness that was occurring in the mob so he grabbed me by the collar and stuck me in the front so I turned, pointed and said to him said "they're with me too" so he signaled for them to join me.  Not wanting to stand on the floor all concert we got some of the best seats center stage but a ways back from the stage.

 

While listening to the recorded music we indulged in some primo substances to enhance the experience. After awhile we're very enhanced.  We had been to other concerts and seen great bands/artists but this was going to be the long awaited chance to see the greatest of the great so we where really stoked.

 

Then the long awaited moment begins. The music stops and the lights go out. We see some beams of light from flashlights on the stage. We hear a few guitar strings plucked then seconds of silence.

 

Then, what you see in this video is exactly what we got. It was a very thrilling moment.

 

Spoiler

 

 

After the concert we got back to the parking garage after midnight. The parking garage attendant, who did not look happy as we walked up, pointed to a sign that said Garage Closes At 11PM..

 

Oops! :facepalm:

if you go to concerts of people who actually play music this isn't an issue

Great topic Riff!  Killer intro for sure.  We use to listen to 2112 and Farewell to Kings all the time.  Has to a phenomenal band to see live.

 

Seen the Long Distance Voyager tour Tony.  Was really good.  No Mike Pinder though :(    Love Justin Hayward's guitar work.  Especially on Story in your eyes.  Best show for me was Yes in the Round in 79. 

 

Will have to check out some Summer events this year.

I had a ticket to see the Beatles in 1964 or 65. My friend Larry won a ticket at a local Honda motorcycle store. On the morning of the show he tells me his mother won't let him go so he gives my the ticket.

 

My mother wouldn't let me go either.  :izmena::angry:

 

But I was only 10 or 11 and had no way to get to Seattle so there was that.  With no easy way to get to Seattle we missed a lot of good concerts before some of us in the group I ran with got drivers licenses beginning with myself in mid 1970.

Those are cool lists of the bands and singers you guys have seen. If you don't mind I will add my list too, or at least as much of it as I can remember...

 

Eric Burden and the Animals, first band I ever saw live.

Redbone, saw them early too.

The Fifth Dimension, my mom took me because she loved them.

Led Zeppelin at 13. I remember Jimmy Page saying as he was tuning his guitar at one point that there were "too many stinky breaths" to keep it in tune.

Chicago a few times

Heart played at our high school dance.

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown

The Rolling Stones during their 72 tour.

Stevie Wonder who was the backup act to the Stones in 72.

Paul McCartney when he was in Vancouver just a few years ago, same with Eric Clapton.

Deep Purple

The Doobie Brothers

J.Geils Band...so incredibly loud that I'm certain I lost part of my hearing that night

Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention

Captain Beefheart

Emerson Lake and Palmer

Saw the Yes play three times, Edgar Winter was the back up band one of those concerts.

We saw lots of blues...Johnny Winter, B.B.King, Albert King, Bo Diddley, John Mayall, Paul Butterfield, Fleetwood Mac in their early blues days and I am sure there were more.

John Mclaughlin and The Mahavishnu Orchestra

Stevie Ray Vaughn and DoubleTrouble

Bruce Hornsby and the Range

Ten Years After

Huey Lewis and the News

Canned Heat

Buddy Miles Band

Buddy Rich Big Band

Oscar Peterson

Tower of Power

took my daughter to see Brittany Spears when she was young, and my son to see Avenged Sevenfold a few years back, that was super loud too or maybe I was just getting too old.

Good times though, that's for sure...

Great List! I also saw Buddy Rich, 3 times and Albert King also. Worked with Michael McDonald when he sang a duet with Ray Charles, on Ray Charles' last album.
