    First rock show was Van Halen at Stokely in Knoxville, it was festival seating and OMG what a mess. BTO opened for them.
    Saw several shows at Tombstone Junction. Great memories. My mom loved Conway Twitty. When he came out in short shorts and high socks she would have left my Dad right then, lol!

    My mom has pictures of that mess, high top socks with red stripes.

    We had to be there at the same time. Remember that little arcade, which besides the shootouts, was the best part?

    St. John Arena in Columbus, Ohio was the venue.
    Kiss was the headliner.
