26. I saw the Rolling Stones perform here in 1978, for $10 a ticket. The "Some Girls" tour.

An unannounced concert that was only advertised on local radio the day of the concert. I showed up there about 7 in the morning, the area was deserted except for thousands standing in line. I never thought I would get the tickets, I ended up getting the first row in the balcony, which was actually very close to the stage.

The Stones delivered. A tiny venue for them, only about 4000 seats. No special effects, video screens, inflatable dolls, just the band.They were incredible.

Edit to add: this is when the Stones were transitioning to the big stadium tours, but couldn't quite give up the small venues, so they did these unannounced performances between stadiums during the tours.
