Some Concerts I've Been To

This is kinda neat!

On my last blog on Saturday Night Videos, I came across a video of a concert that I've been to. Davy Knowles and Back Door Slam from Summerfest in Milwaukee back in '09. This intrigued me to look for some more. Guess what? I found some!

The video above is from the Guns n' Roses show I saw at Alpine Valley on 5/25/1991. Yeah, I remember seeing Axl Rose in that umpire outfit that he is wearing, thinking WTF? My only guess it for protection from flying sod at the show. People from the lawn seats were chucking sod into the reserved seats where I was sitting. Not my kind of fun. The music was great, but the audience was behaving poorly. To top it off, Axl encouraged this kind of behavior.

The next video is from the Heart show I saw on The M&I Stage at Summerfest on 6/30/2009. Went the show with a companion and met up with a mutual friend of ours there. Ann Wilson sure can belt out her vocals after all these years. I believe you can see the back of me at 2:53 in the video. (I remember talking to the dude in the cowboy hat)

This video is from the Yes concert I saw last year's Summerfest on the M&I Stage. Went there with my girlfriend and my son. Even though it wasn't the "classic" lineup of Yes, they put out a great show! I blogged about this show last July.

And finally, Rush! Saw them inside the Marcus Amphitheater at Summerfest on 7/3/2010. My girlfriend and I attended this one as well. Perhaps the best show I've seen in ages! Blogged about this one as well...

Thank God for YouTube! So many treasures one can find there...Just wondering if anybody can find a show they went on YouTube...

Those are some great videos. I especially enjoyed the Heart and Yes vids. I've seen them both live and they did not disappoint. I just became a follower of this blog and am looking forward to exploring it. I've got a blog you might enjoy. I'll just give you the link this one time because I don't want to 'spam' your blog. Feel free to check it out. The Heart and Yes shows I went to were in the 70s but I can still remember like it was yesterday.

The Yes concert was great at summerfest. I was there and I really enjoyed the show. They do know how to put on a great show.

I was also at the Rush concert at summerfest. That was one awesome concert. I just loved it. You can really tell who are the loyal fans.

Thanks for the memories of the concerts. I just took me back to that day.

Welcome john to my blog! Glad to have you as a follower. I did see both Yes and Heart twice, though I wished to have seen them in the '70's

You're welcome, Tender Heart! Glad that I brought back memories for you!

I'm glad we've met Dan! Looking forward to seeing you again this summer. There's a good chance I may be going to see Styx.
