Concert Tickets

Over the last 30 years I have gone to hundreds of music concerts; mostly in the Seattle area. After rummaging through stash boxes of memorabilia, satchels, plastic baggies, man purses, pockets of satin jackets, flannel shirts, bell bottom jeans, etc, I came up with nearly 200 ticket stubs.

Hi Norm, I came across your concert tickets post when looking for images for two haiku posts. Quite random. I was/am very impressed. Also quite serendipitous as two haiku had Joan Armatrading and Hall and Oates references and you had tickets to them! Anyway, I’ve used two images (pages 3 and 7) and credited you accordingly. https://hotcrosshaiku.wordpress.com/2016/11/20/690/ and https://hotcrosshaiku.wordpress.com/2016/11/20/spot-haiku-first-concert-22/ Thank you.

Not sure what ‘haiku’ has to with the tickets.

But okay.

I recognized about half dozen of these shows I went to: Jethro Tull in 76 & 77, Arlo Guthrie, Doobies & Pablo Cruise in 1977, Beach Boys. I saw Kenny Loggins on that tour, but at Red Rocks in Denver.

Back in the ’70s it seemed like there was a concert every night. This collection of ticket stubs doesn’t represent all the show I saw. Just the tickets that survived the last 40+ years.

Thanks for the comment.
