When I look back on my life, the summer of 1984 holds a special part in my heart, and in all of those memories, Neil Young is playing in the background. I finally got to go to one of his concerts in 1986. Alan Davis, my boyfriend at the time, got me the tickets for my birthday. My sister Diana, and her boyfriend at the time, Jeff Barbe went with us.
The stage was designed to look like a garage that the band used to play in and even had remote control rats that ran across the stage. Neil Young's performance was outstanding, and I remember singing along with most of the songs. After the last encore, Neil ran back out and pulled a big plug. The house lights went out, and the show was over. I also remember how the entire coliseum smelled like cannabis, and that joints were being passed from person to person throughout entire sections.
I paid $15.00 my shirt, and again, I can't remember when I stopped wearing it or where it went...Only picture of a shirt on-line I can find:
