Concerts

For anyone that comes across this page, I didn’t make it to show how many concerts I went to, because as you can see, I haven’t been to many. I just made this page to help me keep track because as I get older, it gets harder to place dates with shows
I wish I could have made it to see Led Zeppelin, April Wine, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Kansas, Journey, Boston and Styx (although I did kinda see Styx) but these were some of the  best, especially
RUSH, they put on a show that is mind blowing. Yes is the last concert I went too. I stopped going to concerts, I feel they charge way too much for what you get, but that last concert I was kind of forced to go. Steve Johnson, back in Lansing, Michigan didn’t like the idea that my fav group was making a stop in Hawaii and I wasn’t going, so he mailed me the tickets, how could I say no to that, and it was probably their best performance, and even more, they were accompanied by the Hawai’i Symphony Orchestra.
