Supertramp

Band: Supertramp
Date: 1979
Venue: Bayfront Center Arena

Wow…my first concert! Okay, so this wasn’t in the 80’s. But hey, close enough!

This was Supertramp’s Breakfast in America tour. And for a 1st concert it was unbelievable! Two things stuck in my memory about this concert. One, the people sitting to the left of me were smoking up the entire show. And two, I just remember waiting for them to play “Give A Little Bit.” And sure enough, they played it. Great concert!

Cheers…

Why?

Posted in Whatever by Scooby

Why create a site called 80’s Rock Concerts? I really don’t know. I guess I was just a concert junkie back in the 80’s. I collected most of my concert ticket stubs. And when I found them recently, I decided to create this site.From time to time I will post an image of a concert ticket, and then some highlights of the concert. I think I have close to 50 ticket stubs, so this will be an ongoing project.

I hope a few of you out there will appreciate some of the memories…
