Late night open thread

It was 31 years ago tonight Johnny attended his first concert. He's been to hundreds at this point but you never forget your first. It was a band called New England, then Eddie Money and headlined by Boston. It was at the Pontiac Silverdome where Johnny and his best friends 'F' and 'R' and his girlfriend 'G' went to hang with 80,000 of their closest friends. Underage drinking? Check, rum and coke. Tickets were $8.50. Boston played like 6 songs from their first album and then they just left. Seriously, 6 songs, goodnight. And the crowd said "Booooooooooooooooooooo."

So, what was the first concert YOU went to see?

Boston with 'Foreplay/Longtime'

Time for Jersey City, After Dark
