Clive, Young, The History of Rock Concerts History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Clive Young has been a concert industry journalist for more than 15 years, so The History of Rock Concerts offers an insider’s view of how rock concerts grew from Elvis performing in hayfields to the multi-million-dollar spectacles that the Rolling Stones and Madonna present today. Weaving facts, humorous anecdotes, video and PowerPoint together, this program highlights how concerts, like rock music, have always changed to reflect the times.

Special attention is paid to

  • The Beatles’ 1965 concert at Shea Stadium
  • Woodstock and its tragic sequel, Woodstock 1999
  • The epic charity event, Live Aid
  • The first rock concert
  • The top 10 biggest music events ever
  • How MTV influenced the modern rock show
  • Why tickets cost so much today
  • How a show is produced
  • Hearing protection tips

    As an added bonus, concert earplugs and hearing conservation pamphlets are provided free for all attendees to take home.

    EXCLUSIVE: While this program features considerable performance footage, The History of Rock Concerts features two video documentaries that are exclusive to this program, showing life behind-the-scenes on recent tours by Fleetwood Mac and The Who. These films can not be seen anywhere else!
