I forgot the Philharmonic in 1963 and it was the day Pres. Kennedy assassinated in Texas. Such a sad day, I went home and my mom was crying. It was my brothers birthday and his little party got canceled.

@luvmyteddy  My very first real music production  was at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, U.K. saw La Boheme, my first opera absolutely spell binding I was blown away as a teenager - later came the rock n roll!

My first was September, 1970 at Fillmore West in San Francisco and featured Santana. It was SO good.

It was at Ravinia in Highland Park Illinois. It was the late 70's and I went by train (as there is a train station at the park). I think it was Leo Sayer or Peter Frampton.
