    Concerts by the Year

    I was looking at my old concert ticket stubs book and 1975 was a very busy year for me, as I saw:

    Ten Years After, Slade, Wishbone Ash, Camel, Kiss, Yes, Lynard Skynyrd, Peter Frampton, REO Speedwagon, Mahogany Rush (twice), Status Quo, , Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Kansas, Ted Nugent..

    Anyone care to share a year of concerts?

    1976 and 1977 were pretty great too, but I'll wait to see others responses...

    Nice idea! My 1993:

    Nazareth & Uriah Heep • Duran Duran (unplugged) • Fish (support: Rubicon & Rick Wakeman w./ Adam) • Van Halen (support: Little Angels) • Dream Theater (first ever German concert, support: Heaven’s Gate) • Chandelier • Def Leppard (support: Ugly Kid Joe) • Saga (support: Glenmore) • festival: Faith No More, Iggy Pop, Anthrax, Living Colour, Suicidal Tendencies, The Levellers, RATM, Monster Magnet, Wool • IQ (the “Ever” live concert recording) • Roskilde Festival (Neil Young, Anthrax, Velvet Underground, Motörhead et al.) • Manfred Mann’s Earth Band (support: The Brandos) • IQ (local club gig) • Deep Purple (MkII, 2x) • Dream Theater (support: Damn The Machine) • Howard Jones

    It never got any busier than this for me.

    Cool idea. I did not start attending concert until around 78, but I will have to look through my stub books for a good year.
