A little about the 1978 concert experience.
I was 15 years old. It was my first rock concert.
No opening band but the audience had to wait over two hours in the arena with only a repeated string of ten prerecorded songs being looped again and again.
Some of those songs were annoying to here even only once. I was not the only one a little furious.
When Queen finally came on stage all was forgiven.
I was thrilled to goose bumps at each song. Never heard music being played that loud before. I was a little concerned about ear damage but "let it be done. This is great."
The light display was colorful. A little to blindingly bright a few times. I was concerned about retina damage but "let it be done. This is great."
I could have done without the marijuana smoke floating in the air.
