Title: First date
Post by: Ovincent on July 08, 2012, 06:20:03 pm
My wife and I's first date was a John Cougar/Heart concert 30 years ago on Sep 2nd, 1982 at Blossom Music Center.  Our first kiss was to "Hurt So Good" while standing on the chairs in the pavilion.  We were soaking wet from the rain and had just finished a bottle of wine.  We plan on celebrating our first date jamming to john's new album on s cruise in the Caribbean. Keep Rockin John! So will we. ;D

Oh my gosh...the first time I saw John was at this very same concert.  I have been searching old concert dates online to try and find the date/year this took place as I could not remember (I thought it was 1979 or 1980 so this is so great that Ovincent wrote this post as I now know the exact date!!).  I bought tickets to see Heart and had no intention of going to see the opener with John Cougar as I had never heard of him.  My friend was a huge fan of John and convinced me to go early to see him open the thing I ever did and I have been a huge fan ever since.  Thanks for sharing this story, Ovincent...remembering this concert brings back great memories!!   :D
