LIVE! In concert!
Besides Grace, I saw:
In no specific order, here's a listing of the various concerts I've been to. Not meant to be an all-inclusive list, it's pretty damn close. If someone played in New Haven, Hartford, Syracuse, New York City, Miami, Ft Lauderdale or Boston, and they were one of my favorites, chances are I was there.
I'd hate to think of all the money TicketMaster made off me via their "processing charges" over the years. I'll say this much: not only have concert ticket prices ranged from $6.50 - $100, some were, get this: FREE! Pretty much by taking a look at this list you can figure out which B-list artists were free.
