My name is Elizabeth Stone and I love rock and roll music! I consider myself somewhat of a concert connoisseur. I have been to well over 150 concerts or more and have tickets to two more shows before the end of 2015.
My first concert was UFO & Ozzy Osborn in San Antonio, Texas on February 19, 1982. This was actually one of the most historical yet controversial shows in rock music. Ozzy, who was obviously NOT a native Texan, urinated on the Alamo, got arrested and was banned from San Antonio for ten years. Released just in time to play the show, Ozzy belted out “Diary of a Madman” as riots broke out inside the arena. People were breaking out the windows and throwing chairs! Being only 11 years old… I was HOOKED! Unfortunately, exactly one month to the day, on March 19th, 1982, tragedy struck and Ozzy along with the world, lost a phenomenal young guitarist named Randy Rhoads.
I have passed down the tradition of attending live events, to my children. My oldest attended her first concert, Sugar Ray, when she was about 7 and has since been to several live shows including everything from the Vans Warped tour to Micheal Bublé in the 4th row! My second daughter’s first show was Hannah Montana and has since been to Mackelmore, Wiz Kalifa and other hip hop shows. My youngest attended her first concert a few years ago, which was the Eagles (with me), then she chose to go see Justin Bieber. Yes.. I said it .. The Biebs!
