|My Second Concert ever, Paul Revere & The Raiders with Special Guests in 1968
Written by Pat Adams on February 8, 2013 for Tennessee Concerts
I've already written about my very first concert, this is about my second concert.
The year was 1968, it was a concert at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium featuring Paul Revere & The Raiders, along with opening acts Tommy
Roe, Keith Allison and Exile.
Exile was originally a rock & roll band. They changed to country music in later years. I just remember that they had matching outfits, not uncommon
for bands in the 1960's. I knew who Keith Allison was because he was a regular on the TV show "Where The Action Is". I think, in later years he
became a Raider for a while. Tommy Roe put on a good show. I was always a fan of his catchy pop tunes as a kid. I later saw Tommy Roe and
Mark Lindsay together in an oldies show at the Tennessee State Fair around the year 2000 (pictures on this page).
Just before Paul Revere & The Raiders were to come on stage, the crowd was asked to leave their seats and go out into the lobby of the
auditorium. I later read in the newspaper, the next day, that a small bomb was found in an auditorium restroom.
We were eventually able to return to our seats and Paul Revere & The Raiders came out on stage. There they were in person, the guys that I had
watched so many times on TV. I remember Mark Lindsay coming out taking pictures of the audience with one of the
old flashcube cameras. They played the hits. It was great! I remember at one point in the show one of the members sprayed the drummer (I think)
with a fire extinguisher.
This show had a real stage and stage lights, unlike the first concert that I had gone to. In my mind, it almost seems that my first concert (The
Turtles & Lovin Spoonful) was in black and white, and this one was in color. A huge difference considering they were only about a year or two apart.
