Tuesday Countdown to Britney: T-Minus 3 Weeks and Counting
This week, I figured I’d reflect back, on the very first Britney Spears show I attended, way back in 1999 (yes, Britney’s been around for 10 years -- doesn’t that make you feel old?).
When I was cleaning out my basement a few weeks ago, I came across the ticket stub for the first Britney concert I attended (lesson: I need to throw stuff out more often), at Pier Six in Baltimore on Sept. 4, 1999. The cost of the ticket? $25. By comparison, my cheaper seat for the two MSG shows later this month was $154.50 -- and that seat is actually two rows further back than the one from 1999.
I’ve actually got about three rolls worth of pictures from the concert that I also came across, and eventually I plan on getting them all scanned in (stupid pre-digital era). For now, you’ll just have to deal with the handful I posted over to the left. Enjoy.
