Roberta Flack/Arie Crown/1972. Family outing. Opener was then-relatively-unknown George Carlin and his "Seven Dirty Words" routine!

It's a lot harder to remember the 1st concert than I thought.  It may have been Kansas, Rush and Starcastle at the Aragon Ballroom.  Maybe it was Frank Zappa at the Uptown theater.  Back when Journey was good (first three albums before Steve Perry) at the Riviera theater. 

Things were a little cloudy back then, might be why its hard to remember.  :)

Update on Johnny B's/ Blackhawk Alumni  bowling fundraiser: Aside from the numerous raffle items on hand that Johnny has arranged for, I will be bringing several donations that would be of interest to any die hard Blackhawks fan, i.e., an autographed Tony Esposito mask, and autographied Duncan Keith hat, stick blade autographed by Chris Chelios, Denis Savard, Tony Esposito and Bobby Hull, an autographed Bobby Hull puck and poster and a Blackhawk sweater autographied by The Golden Jet himself. Several former Blackhawks will be in attendance and most likely current players. Hope a few of you guys can make it tomorrow to show support for one of our own who is raising money for a good cause.

I recall seeing the Carpenters at the Arie Crown with Girl Scouts but my first unchaperoned, "why does it smell so weird in here?" concert was Styx at the Lane Auditorium... right Kris Hallowell?

In the meantime... thanks to all the Bicentennials who have purchased Cubs tickets for alumni night at Wrigley on the 22nd.  Because we have to adapt to the new, pain-in-th-neck digital ticketing process with MLB, our alumni tickets sales will close tomorrow night.  Any unsold tickets will be returned to Wrigley and no last-minute accommodations will be possible so buy 'em today or tomorrow folks... and I'll do what I can to seat all '70s peeps close to one another.

Not counting the Dave Clark Five, the doobies or Elvis, forgot which was first. Both with Graff, Grabowski and Luk

First was 3 Dog Night in '74, Elton John in '74 and another time but I don't remember the year.  Elvis in 76, a year before he died.  He was so out of it, he couldn't finish any songs because he forgot the words.  Very sad but great seats up close.

John, I would have loved to have been at that Eagles concert with warm-up Dan Fogelberg.  Two of my favorites!

Well, first concert was John Denver, Chicag Stadium, 75 or 76, with my girlfriend Karen. And she’s still my girlfriend! Pretty lame, I suppose, but it was a great show!

Robert Scott Young.......I recall many times your mom would shout that in the house.  How are you brother?  And speaking of is Eric?  And your sister Sarah?  Seeing your picture brings back crazy memories or V-dubs and Fairlanes.  First concert was Flash Flash Cadillac, Santana, America, and the Eagles at Ravina.  First indoor conceret......KISS.  Be well my friend.  Ed

What memories. 1975 America at Arie Crown, Chicago and Beach Boys at Chicago Stadium and The Who also at the stadium. Locked the keys in the car at the stadium . Could not find anyone with a slim gym to get in the car. My date was getting a little scared because the lot quickly emptied out. Had to break the window. Good Times

Hey Alice... I can't see names but I see 27 tickets purchased by 76ers, 5 by both the classes of '75 and '77 and 8 by the class of '78. Just under 600 total in our group! All the 70s peeps will be seated near each other.  I have one extra ticket if anybody wants to join us last minute.

Johnny Burke Marks 25 Years Of Fundraising, Bowling Party In Arlington Heights Benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities

By Denise Fleischer | on May 08, 2019

Johnny B’s 25th Annual Scotch Doubles Candlelight Bowling Party, benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago, is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 10 at Beverly Lanes in Arlington Heights.

“This year I am trying to match or exceed the $16,000 raised at last year’s event,” said Johnny Burke of Palatine, the event’s organizer. “To accomplish this goal, I’ll be selling special raffle tickets prior to and during the bowling party. These tickets can be sold to anyone because the winner need not be present to win.”

Burke started the event 25 years ago to raise money for his bowling team. After meeting the Delanty family, whose son passed away from leukemia in 1988, and going to Camp One Step, which is a camp for kids with cancer, Burke joined the Delanty Family Golf Invitational by giving funds raised from his candlelight event to Camp One Step.

The family created The Brian Delanty Funds where their son was treated at the University of Chicago Wyler’s Children’s Hospital and Children’s Memorial Hospital. The funds provided money to the hospitals to assist families with their daily living expenses. Burke’s Candlelight Bowl event raised over $200,000 for the Brian Delanty Fund.

The Delantys ended their fundraising and dissolved the foundation in 2016. Burke had to find another 501(c) (3) sponsor that could donate the candlelight event funds to a Chicago area charity.

“In 2018, we joined forces with the Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association who will make the donation on our behalf to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago,” said Burke. “The proceeds of the 2017 and 2018 candlelights were donated this past summer to the Ronald McDonald Houses. Total donation was $26,100.”

Burke is hoping for another successful fundraiser. “Together we can make a difference in the lives of sick children and their families,” he said.
