I can' t believe I still have this stub after 33 years, but somehow it has stayed with me. I haven't even consciously tried to keep it in good condition but it's still legible...I probably have moved 6 or 7 times or more since then and it has somehow survived....pretty cool.

Anyway, a little personal history: As you can see, this stub is from the summer of 1975...Eagles, Seals and Crofts and Poco (Poco not listed on the stub). The venue was the famous Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, NJ where I grew up. I would estimate there were about 20,000 people there if I remember correctly - maybe more. I lived less than 1 mile from the Stadium for many years so I walked to the show with a few friends. Roosevelt Stadium, if you are not familiar, was the site of many great summer shows for a while in the 1970's. I think this was my 3rd show ever as a kid - I was just 14 years old at the time. The first two shows were The ABB and the Pink Floyd at the very same place. I also caught The Dead there the following summer in 1976. The memories of that time are washing over me as I type... It cost me only $7.50 to see this cool triple-bill. The Eagles were touring in support of "One Of These Nights"...Seals and Crofts were also very popular back then. "Summer Breeze, makes me feel fine!"... It certainly did that night.

Any of you guys have stubs from that far back???

Very cool stub. Thanks for showing it. $7.50 fron '75 would only be about $25 today.

Not so sure about that...especially considering The Eagles charge about $200.00 to see them play today....ouch!

Eddie, my first show was in '75 also, in April, I believe. It was Aerosmith. Unfortunately, I lost that one. Thanks for sharing.

I have a stub from the June 28th, 1975 Pink Floyd show at Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton Ontario. It was one of only a few shows of that size ever there based on the fact it is in a neighbourhood and people were camping on lawns and in the street prior to and after the show. It was quite an experieince what I can remember of it. I also have The Guess Who & King Biscuit Boy - CNE Stadium Toronto, Aug 22nd 1975. Oh and the cost of that ticket, $5.50. I remember buying four of them at the ticket wicket about a month prior for $22.00 which was about what I made doing odd jobs for a week. A lot of money for a kid back then, but a great show none the less.

Nice stub. When I think of the bands mentioned on the stub I get thinking wouldnt they be better to see in a nice 5000 seat hall. Oh well. My oldest stub is 2002

I had my last nite at the Fillmore East stub along with a Bros stub from StonyBrook and a couple hunnert more and my wife "accidentally threw out" the whole collection. Everytime I bring it up in passing I get a homemade apple pie.

My first concert in 1975, and what a great way to start. I have just about every stub since, some of the Ticketron ones are nearly illegible due to ink fade, like the Skynyrd one from July '75.



I have most sports events too, saw a bunch of crappy Braves and Falcons games over the years! Here's my oldest, that was not pink to start out but my wallet got washed in around late '72. Evel was the man!

I wish I kept all mine.



They didn't have tickets for the ABB show in early 1971. You just paid at the door.

Nice stubs! I had a box full and finally broke down and bought one of those ticket books advertised in the back of Rolling Stone and love it!! The books are basically small photo albums where you slip in the stub instead of a photo. I filled two books and now can show my stubs off instead of people trying to paw through the box. I recommend it for any of you with bunches of tix like me. My earliest ones are only from '79/'80 but some good ones!

An older one...

I believe this is the show where Bonnie brought her father out on stage to "help" with the encore. John Raitt, was the star of the Broadway musical .."Oklahoma".. so, that was the encore, with Bonnie playing slide while her Father sang Oklahoma...complete with arm gesturing theatrics to a crowd of people muttering ...wtf is this?

It was the Thick As A Brick tour. Aqualung was released in 71, and they played much of it too. Aqualung had made me a fan.

Another oldie, though not nearly as old as the first one.

Grateful Dead / Madison Square Garden Sept 23, 1988 - One of 9 shows they played that MSG run.

I have never experienced more energy at any show than The Dead at MSG, just thunderous...

I still have my first concert stub-- Jan 16, 1971 ABB at the Atlanta Municipal Auditorium. I have many old ticket stubs, my favorite being The Rolling Stones at the fox theater from June 1978. Alex Cooley had globe ticket co print The Cockroaches on the ticket instead of the rolling stones so even the ticket printers wouldn't know what it was really for. The ticket has glitter stuck in the ink on the front. Paid a whopping 10.00 for the show!
