Cool!

Rush was the first rock concert I went to. The ticket was $8! I think it was Farewell to Kings tour, but I'm not sure. Did anyone else see them back then?

I notice that "Heyoka" was hand-written on the ticket. Another San Antonio classic.

I was there at the first "Farewell to Kings" concert at the Municipal Auditorium (they played two shows on consecutive nights).

San Antonio was seriously a home of rock and roll.

Joe Anthony gave many bands the go ahead here. Triumph Judas Priest Rush. Rock is still pretty big here. Moving back after 15 years and sure nuf 99.5 kiss still rocking.

Checked out the link and sure enough there is joe anthonys name and omg they played Randys Rodeo!!! Even then it wasnt exactly Madison sq gardens. too cool. I lived in Inspiration hills about a quarter mile away.

"Every time we played in San Antonio, I was reminded of the first time, in 1975. The show, at a country-and-western club called Randy's Rodeo, was being promoted by a small local radio station, and as we arrived in town, we were amazed to hear them playing nothing but Rush songs (we only had two albums at the time, so there wasn't much variety) all day and night...with all that radio hype, the tiny roadhouse was packed (meaning a couple of hundred people), and that performance was the seed of an enduring popularity for the band in San Antonio." - Neil Peart, Roadshow
