While going through some cd's a while back, I stumbled across some of my old concert tickets, including the first two "real" shows I ever attended: Peter Gabriel at the Worcester Centrum in 1993, and Yanni a month later at Great Woods in MA.
Yeah. Yanni. It was a graduation present from my buddy Todd's parents. Don't judge me.
Also pictured: Toad the Wet Sprocket from 1994 in Strawberry Banke in Virginia (I lived a few years down south after graduating high school), and Tori Amos from 1996 at the Wang Center. The bottom ticket was for Toad for a special pre-release concert for "Coil" at the Avalon Ballroom in Boston. Working for Newbury Comics back then had it's privileges.
I love Toad. The two acts I've seen live more than any other are Tori Amos and Toad the Wet Sprocket. Dozens for both. If you include seeing Toad's frontman Glen Phillips solo, then Toad/Glen beats out Tori.
I used to have a ticket stub for the Spice Girls as well, but it was lost. Yeah. Spice Girls. I worked at Newbury Comics when Spice World was released and got some complimentary tickets. It was right after Ginger Spice left the band, which sucked, 'cuz Ginger was my favorite. It was a really weird concert.
I used to save concert and movie ticket stubs in a big container, but it got wrecked and most of them were lost during a move about a decade ago. Good memories though. Except Spice Girls. That was some weird shit.
What ticket stubs do YOU still have? Share!
