Glad to see the lineup of concert movies. . . .

Absolutely, however no group including the Dead ever did that before at the Filmore East and I can't say for certain which concert ( the Dead at the Filmore, or the Stones at Altamont came first) but I'd imagine it would have been the Filmore concert).  Luckily my boyfriend and I didn't get clubbered in the head or worse. I did go to the Filmore many times after that, and no Biker security was there again, and of course had we seen the Bikers in the first place we probably would have thought twice about going into the building.

I had the exact opposite experience as you, lavenderblue19. I was in the front General Admission area at a Peter Gabriel concert once when he pulled a Bruce Springsteen and laid back into the audience in the Mosh Pit area. I wasn't trying to touch him, but everyone around me was and in the process I got squashed and literally pushed to the ground. Next thing I knew, I felt a firm grasp on my shirt and I was propelled over the barrier (actually I think I hit it  a few times on the way 😵.) I was put on the ground and two security guards were asking me if I was hurt. I think I was probably crying by this time but I told them I was OK. Then they escorted me to an actual seat which was literally in the last row and in back of the stage. Then I really started to cry!  It was nice of them, though, to pull me over. People become such jerks at concerts. They're friendly before the show, then when it starts they start pushing you out of the way! 😒

I'm sorry you had that lousy experience Sage, you're so lucky that you weren't hurt even worse or stomped on by the crowd. My experience sounds as if it was a few years before yours when that mosh pit stupidity wasn't thought of at concerts. Yes, your security guards were not Hells Angels obviously and you were lucky they were watching out for you. Glad you were just frightened instead of seriously hurt.

Much safer and easier to be a bobby soxer at the Paramount and yell and swoon over Frank than what the generations that followed went thru!

I wonder if that isn't a PETER GABRIEL SPRINGSTEEN pulled... PETER GABRIEL  did the same thing when i saw him at a show in Madison Square Garden around '86 or '87.  Great show, too!

Good point! I always assumed it was Springsteen who did it first but maybe it wasn't!

I know a guy who went to a concert and saw something a lot of people NEVER saw!......

SYLVESTER STEWART actually showing up!  :D

Can you imagine all those huge arenas at which SATFS were booked to perform having to refund all those tickets?  They missed a lot of shows.

2 BIG THUMBS DOWN!

4 nights and all day Labor Day of concert movies???? I WONT BE WATCHING! TCM's programming is really going down the tubes.

For me, this was The Lost Weekend. I want plot and narrative and acting, not this.  Call me old fashioned, but that's what I though TCM was all about?

So TCM should show no documentaries?

I would LOVE for TCM to have a time slot dedicated to documentaries every week like Noir Alley, The Essentials, Underground, Silent Sunday Nights and Imports have. Maybe Saturday or Sunday afternoon before the primetime slot?
