I was there too

Thanks for the memory. I was fifteen. I didnt even know who Led Zeplin was when I ordered two tickets from someone whom was picking them up at the box office.  When I went to pick them up I was told that he had sold them by mistake.  My dear friend Fred talked me into leaving Jamestown and go up without a ticket.  He said I could go scalp one.  Piece of cake, I thought.  Fred kept trying to get me to buy his ticket at triple the price, a mere sixteen dollars. Everyone else in the car told me not to do it.  I began to panic as we got closer and the deal was off the table.  We arrived in the parking lot and they made me go alone into a place I had never been.  I was scared.  I remember walking by the Bonanza bus depot and it was all lit up so my anxiety subsided and I began asking people if they had a ticket to sell.  I met fun people along the way and my group of friends said hello as they passed me by. I soon found myself at the entrance to the Civic Center with no ticket to get inside.  So I headed back down the street again and growing despondent I saw this couple leaning up against the wall of the bus depot fighting and so I asked "Do you have any tickets you want to sell?"   They did.  It wasnt before I was halfway up the street that I realized I had just purchased two tickets for eleven bucks.  Sold the other one for ten bucks.  Finally found my friends and had the adventure of a lifetime.  It was my first concert and you are right it was the best of all time!  Im very happy to have not been outside during the riots.  They cancelled the next concert scheduled in Boston after that show.  It is one of my favorite stories about my youth.  Minimum wage was one dollar and sixty five cents an hour.   When I told my friends my street adventure and how i procured a ticket for a dollar I was now one of the "cool" kids,  I think nine of us drove up their together and I took that ten bucks and treated us all to McDonalds and even got change back.  The music of the seventies was amazing and affordable at $5.50 and $6.50 per ticket and sometimes you can get lucky and your very first concert might only have cost you a buck and it was the greatest band of rock n roll!
