Yes, my son had to ask "What is a tapedeck daddy?" Sure does make you feel old. However, If we could get some new Van Halen music with DLR in the next century, I might feel young again.

Here's a comparison from the last show I attended ($154.50+$11.15 Convenience Charge).

At least they allow Fireworks now. :biggrin:

If the ticket had gone up by US inflation rates then what cost $13.50 in 1984 should have cost $27.63 in 2008

+$11.15 Convenience Charge




Doesn't sound very convenient to me.
;)


Funny how the ticket says no audio/video, yet Dave was hamming it up for everyones camera. Lots of stuff on Youtube from up close. People weren't even trying to hide the fact they were recording. I guess they just didn't want someone coming in with a professional camera & tripod. lol

Convenience charge? To whom? Them?

I was there in 1984 myself, welcome.

Very cool CROWBAR. Image is a little small, what venue was it? Must be a big city for 2 shows.

This is prompting me to look at all of my old stubs. The messed up thing is that some of them are fading. Probably a good time to get them all scanned in.

Here is something interesting... 2 shows from the same year, kept in the same folder, and one is fading badly, the other one is in "Daimond" shape and cheaper. Go Figure!

Oklahoma City, at the Myriad Convention Center. That place is now retired and across the street is the Ford Center. Caught the second night and it was great.

Phone cameras have ended that, you can't ban people from bringing their cell phone to a gig.

Check it out, It will bring back memories. Listen how the crowd goes NUTS when DLR jumps onto the stage.
