Show us your concert tickets

Inspired by the “what we listening in June” thread, i got the idea to let us show some concert tickets.
Concerts are very nice memories for most of us, so why not show us a few tickets.
Thats stupid, but some music enthusiasts (like me) could like it. :grin:

There is no need for big explanations or reviews of the concerts.

I would find it exciting to see a few of them.

I’ll start with this one

i saw him 2 times that year, one time after the Pixies on a festival

Flyer, concert ticket and single sided 12" 45rpm white label of Amy Winehouse .

Sadly the only one I kept because I got the single and put the stub in the sleeve with it.
Small venue , stage was about 4/5 inches high, I was stood at about my arm span away from her for the set.
This was before she set off on a spiral of substance abuse.

She was tiny.

very nice - i didn’t see attend any of those shows, but have listened to them often - the addition of Hornsby gave the band a boost of energy they hadn’t seen in years - love the Valley Road from that night…

Those old concert tickets spark things in your mind that you haven’t thought about in many years and they will always make you smile.

Glad you like the thread idea :slightly_smiling_face:
I saw Pink Floyd short after your ticket in Praque Czech Republik. Lost my ticket over the time.
It was a gigantic stadium and Vaclav Havel was sitting a few meters behind me

Your brush with greatness and he is a Pink Floyd fan! Hope that memory made you smile, haha!

as a big fan, i saw Lou Reed 3 times.
first as opening act for U2 on the Joshua Tree Tour, then in a classic venue together with Bob Neuwith where he played the complete “magic and loss” concept album, a magic evening.
And then the concert from this ticket.
A open Air in front of the pretty Dresden skyline where i arrived to early and stood therefore directly in the first line 2 meter in front of Lou. that was a special concert for me, and now i can also say, Lou Reed shaked my hand, haha

Did you all have to write in to get such tickets or are they just more creative in Europe? I keep looking at mine and seeing the standard blue and white with the name printed on it. Pretty boring.

Glastonbury 2010, so quite a few acts over the days

agree - the European ticket art is impressive … The ushers also seem to pay attention to the tear… Looking at my bag of stubs, many are just torn in half…

…keeping with the Floyd and Lou Reed theme…
