I was there. With my best friend Laura. Her dad brought us, we were only 13. My first concert and I can still hear the incredible high-pitched screaming of the girls.

Me, too. I was there with my girlfriend Tina V. She liked Woody and I liked Les. Dressed in plaid and screamin' like crazy. My Dad dropped us off and picked us up later. Wow, we had fun! Those were the days of great concerts!

I was there!! I took my sister & my niece. My Mom & Dad drove us into Chicago from Rockford. They dropped us off then picked us up after the concert. Our seats were pretty far back. But we still seen them & heard them. It was the Best time!!!I fell in Love with Les even more that night!! He forever has a special place in my heart. It's sad that he tours everywhere but the US! So many fans still see him and he takes pics with fans and talks to fans. My dream is/was to see him again but I Can't travel to any of his gigs. Not really fair to his US fans.
