Writer's Block: Legends of Rock

There are a few concerts that go down in musical history—Altamont, Woodstock, Live Aid, the Hannah Montana Best of Both Worlds tour—as legendary experiences. What live show stands as legend in your own experience?


I enjoyed Ravinia in Chicago and they had one with a famous soprano singing Turandot by Puccini. I had a lawn chair that didn't hurt my back, folding picnic table, good seat in a spacious area not crowded in so close that other people were pushing around us and a good time with the classical music. We drank wine and ate croissants from the concessions.

I don't like crowds. I heard about those things and as a teen thought I'd get into it... but the reality even at a small one was brutally painful and I came to understand just how much I hated crowds. I couldn't hear the music and was surrounded by people. I couldn't help remembering how people had been trampled to death when a fire started at one, it was on the news a couple of years before.

So no, that was not my thing. I wasn't one of the faceless multitudes at a vast happening that became famous by how many people subsumed their identities into the faceless multitude.
