Just wonderin' out loud. I try to keep my Concert Ticket Stubs. I probably have about 75% of the shows I've attended over the last 20 years or so. Is any else out there "Into this"?..If so, I thought it might be cool to Post some of them. (I haven't figured out why my scanner does not work yet so I'll just write a few here).

Post Three...and One has to be an Allman (Family) stub...

Crosby, Stills & Nash Sun, Aug 11 1996, SDSU Open Air Amp. (Comp)

Miles Davis "Humphrey's By the Bay" S.D. Fri. June 13 1986 (18.50)

Gregg Allman Band "The Coach House" San Juan Cap, Ca. Mon April 17 1989 (19.50)

Next?

I've kept all of mine from the last 30 years. There were a few club shows where they didn't give you a ticket they would just stamp your hand or something. I made a home made ticket for those to keep with the rest so I could keep up with how many and who they were. An example would be Iggy Pop and also the Black Crowes at the old 328 Club in Nashville that no longer exists. If they were a club band I didn't bother with making a stub but if they were a recording artist I did. A couple of others are Blackfoot and Blue Oyster Cult at the Mainstreet club in Murfreesboro, Tn.

I've also got a collection going back over the last 30 years or so. wish I had the awareness to keep all of them but unfortunately it's like you didn't know that what you were witnessing was going to become legendary!

I have kept all my stubs since my first concert in 75, Pink Floyd ("man, there's an airplane crashing into the stage!", very impressive to a 15 yr old). Never organized them, just a big stack, save my 27 GD tix, framed those. I have noted that the more buzzed I was at a show, the more crumpled the ticket.

Yea, I'm the same. They use to go back to 1969, but somewhere around 1980 my apartment was broken into and the only thing they took were my ticket stubs (Fillmore East, Asbury Park Convention Hall, Bottom Line, Sheaffer Music Festival, Roosevelt Stadium, Capitol Theatre, Academy of Music, et al.

Why would they just take my ticket stubs? Well, actually they were the only thing I use to keep in my lock box, which I would imagine they thought was the only place money would be. Turns out, right next to the lock bock was a cardboard box with 6 big ones stuck underneath. I use to hate banks. Can't believe they missed it, but at the time I was actually more pissed off that all my ticket stubs had been stolen. Bastards!

I have every stub but two since 1973. Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Baby tour was the first show at MSG for me.
I plan on finishing a "stub" book by group before the end of the year. I also have a lot of old reviews and pictures to go along with the stubs. I also have a box of old "Circus" magazines that had great pictures and articles on the great bands over the years. I hope to put them up on ebay for sale soon.

I found looking at the stub could really take you back to the whole experience of each show. Each concert has a different story to tell. My daughter and her husband like when I go back over my "wild" days with them.
Peace,
JIM

yup, kept all mine, although been thinkin about writing down all the shows where i didn't get to keep a stub, cause I'm forgetting stuff as the years roll on. The ones i keep make for good conversation pieces when folks come round, have them all framed in my guitar room.

I also have a box of tickets - first ABB show was in 1979 at the Uptown in Chicago. I used to go to hundreds of concerts, and had a list at one time of who I had seen and how many times. Unfortunately, I lost it.

If your scanner doesn't work, a digital picture works just as well now.

Mine go back to November 1970, The Who at Glasgow Green's Playhouse. Apart from most of the 1980's (I blame the ex-wife), my collection is kept in the peel-back style photograph albums. In Relix ads at the back, there's now special binders available for collecting ticket stubs

I usually put a poster from the show if possible with the stub like a printed pic or something, but I definitely keep them

I keep all of mine. One of my favorites is an unripped stub from my last Grateful Dead show at RFK in 1995. I was lucky enough to sit on stage. Dennis McNally met us and gave us our tickets, so there was no going through security or any of that.

I had a ticket stub collection going back to 60's that was added to frequently over the years but got rid of them all about 10 years ago in one of my "need to be free of possessions" stages (I am such a pack rat and this was just more stuff being gathered that needed tending).

Some of my favorite's over the years have been the Grateful Dead tix issued through the GD Hotline or fanclub which would have various colored holographs that changed from show to show (steal your face, dancing bears or skeletons, etc). It was always a treat to get your order envelope, open it up, and see what would jump out at you. I believe I have a few of these still around for sentimental reasons.

I cant find mine from the early years but I keep all of em now.

I have been thinking about doing a live show diary. Its hard sitting here wondering who we saw live the last couple years. it all runs together after awhile.

I have kept every ticket stub of every show I have attended from my first (Rush 5-20-81) right up to last nights Beacon show. Keep them in a baseball card like album. I lost one ticket from a 1984 Van Halen show at MSG, but other than that I have them all. Just did a count and last nights show was my 351st show. I have probably also attended 20 to 30 free shows through the years that I would qualify as major acts that I have no ticket stubs from.

oh god do i! otherwise i would have forgotten half of them.

and i've lost many, many stubbs along the way too.....(most notably my entire beacon stub collection thanks to a faulty lanyard configuration)

my favorites are the Jam For Duane stub, my Woodstock '99 Volunteer lanynard, and the ticket stub from the ozzfest 200, my 30th birthday - it was soaked, and got black feather dye all over it.
