25 years

25 years ago today I attended my very first concert. I was 14 and I went to see Van Halen's 1984 tour at the Thomas and Mack here in Las Vegas. The ticket was $15 and I still have it. I went with my friend Vicky and my boyfriend, Erick. I remember spending $12 for a t shirt and coming home to my mothers homemade egg rolls. I have no idea why I remember this so clearly.

My first concert was New Kids on the Block and I was 12. Yours was so much cooler than mine. :)

My first was Tears for Fears, I do believe it was 1985, with Jennifer.

I remember that Van Halen tour, I wanted to go, but my Mom wouldn't let me, I can't remember why.

If concert prices were only that cheap still, damn. Depeche Mode is coming (I've never seen them!) but the nosebleeds are over $75. WTF?
