Concerts & Shows

At about 8 years old my father took me to see my first concert, Journey & Foreigner at Hershey stadium.  From that time forward I was hooked on live music and still can’t get enough.  Below is a pretty comprehensive list of all the shows and music festivals I’ve been to, but I know I’ve missed a few along the way.  As of November 2014 I’ve seen 324 performances at 55 events.  I’m currently in the process of converting this list to a more user friendly way of viewing the shows and trends, as well as updating shows for November 2014 through today.  There’s plenty more to add!
