Eric Clapton & Elton John @ Hippodrome Paris Vincennes, Vincennes - June 18th, 1992


Nearly thirty years ago I attended this concert featuring two of my all-time favorite artists on one bill. I seem to remember Bonnie Raitt opening but I can't find anything about it online, so maybe I made that up. This cost 190 Francs. Adjusted for inflation, this would be 43,31 euros. Or 45.75 USD. There is no way you could go to a concert of any of these artists at that price nowadays. Even C-level bands charge around 60 euros these days.

Guns N' Roses @ Hippodrome de Paris-Vincennes, Vincennes - June 6th, 1992

Even though this concert happened thirty years ago, I can still remember everything about it. Guns N' Roses was the biggest rock band in the world, and my favorite one as well. It had been five years since they released their debut album Appetite For Destruction and less than nine months since they released their then-current albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II.
