we should go to more concerts….

said Dan this evening while shaving.
Yah, I said. We should.
I go downstairs….read a few headlines before I go to bed…..and
GUESS who’s coming to Omaha?!


Billy Joel.
April 28.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday.
I better go start camping out for good tickets!!

First concert I ever went to without my parents.
I drove with my friend Kristie to Ames, Iowa. probably 1977 or 78. Our tickets were probably nosebleed, but we didn’t care.
And I still remember that he laid down on the grand piano and sang. It was AWEsome!!!
I still have the concert program. I WISH I still had the t-shirt!!!
We wore those t-shirts to school the next day…well, AFTER school because we wore uniforms…but, still……it was cool.
We’ve seen Billy Joel with Elton John in Ames, too.

  1. I saw Billy here in Omaha…in about 1979…the concert was “in the round”…I think Bread was his opening act. He was awesome!
