Ticket Stubs--The Lost Art
Not sure why I didn't think of this before while doing my Concert Trek series, but here's a little visual evidence of the shows I 've profiled so far (click pic to enlarge). Remember the good ol' days when concert tickets were printed in advance? They were certainly more aesthetically pleasing than today's bastardized print-'em-on-the-spot tickets. That's Kiss in the middle of the top row, Ted Nugent on the left of row two, Rush on the left of row three, ZZ Top next to them, and "The" Police at the bottom right. You might also note the water damage on the Foreigner stub there! Unfortunately, my Pat Benatar, Quarterflash and Charlie Daniels stubs are missing in action and presumed lost.
