September 22, 1985

On this day in 1985, The first “Farm Aid” concert was held in Champaign, Illinois with Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, John Fogerty and many others performing.


In 1985, the ticket price was $17.50 USD, with inflation, that would only be $39.14 in 2016- That is amazing, considering that I recently purchased two “large” beers at a concert in Toronto this summer and that was $37 + tip! I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I paid $300 for the two tickets to that Toronto show as well.
