Back in the 70s when my parents were in their 20s they really loved classic rock and country music. They dragged me to concerts, most of which I thought were fun, but I didn't really "get it."
I envy that you got to see all those people, even if you don't have strong memories of it. My parents listened mainly to the Ray Conniff singers and Olivia Newton-John, but didn't go to any shows. I think I might have actually enjoyed those if they had.

The funny thing is that my appreciation for them has gone down since then, not up, so this isn't one I wanted to relive. I may have been spoiled by the Tattoo You show, also at the Cotton Bowl, in which it blew like a fucking hurricane and we were in the upper deck getting rain blown in our faces and screaming along with the songs. The Fabulous T-Birds and ZZ Top weren't bad either.
I saw them at the November 11th, Saturday show in '89 at the Cotten Bowl. When I saw them, Living Colour opened up for them. We missed them (mainly because we were out in the parking lot of the Cotten Bowl drinking beer) - thought those guys would be huge and I would have plenty of other chances to see them, oh well, haha.

I even wrote up a concert review for the school paper that my journalism teacher liked so much she put it on the front page. I came back to my little high school in Mississippi and thought I was a badass, haha.

Here is the tour info on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steel_Whee ... ungle_Tour
