The first concert I ever went to was Stompin' Tom Connors (a Canadian icon). I think I was maybe 10 and my father took me. As he played he stomped on a piece of plywood and I still remember him knocking the sawdust off it a few times during the concert.
In 89' I went to Toronto to see the Stones on their Steel Wheels tour, then the next night caught Tom Petty on his Full Moon Fever Tour. That was what you had to do back then to see one of the big groups play. Since then the Stones, Skynyrd, AC/DC, Frampton, Boo Hoo (U2) and a lot of other huge bands have played right here in Moncton. But I think my favorite was Stevie Ray Vaughn, just a year before he died.
I'm a huge Bob Seger fan but he never played around here back in his heyday in the late 70s and I was too young to go out of town back then. He did come to a nearby city a couple of years ago but ticket prices are just stupid these days (over $100) plus hotel, etc, and he can't hit those notes anymore so we didn't bother.
Mellencamp is playing here in September and my wife wants to go. Tickets are (only!) $60 so we might go to that.
