What show do you brag about having gone to?

Posted at 9:40 AM on May 30, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

The Musicheads want you to (gladly) admit it: What show do you brag about having gone to?

Some choice answers already in the discussion:

"Pantera at Ozzfest 2000. One of the last chances anyone had to see Pantera live."- Jill Riley, DJ for The Current

"I saw Elvis (Presley, not Costello) around 1975 at the Saint Paul Civic Center. I think I was around 11 or 12 and went with my mom and her sister. Altho I had no desire to see someone my MOTHER liked cuz, ya know, I was so young and so hip, it was fascinating. I finally came around in my 20's and fell in love with "The Big Guy" and yes, I've been to Graceland and Memphis several times. I don't go around bragging about it but sometimes it does come up in conversation and I'm proud to say I got to see the King." - Jill N.

" I saw R.E.M., with Bill Berry back on the drums, at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA. (All you R.E.M. fans will know what an awesome combination of things are in that sentence). [...]" - Casey G.
