A few hours later, the audience filed in and Heart ("Dreamboat Annie" 1st tour) came on. They were good but I didn't stay around to watch the whole set. I was backstage in Boston's dressing room with my friends when all of a sudden the door opened and Joe "fuckin" Perry walked in looking like a true rock star. My mouth dropped and Joe said hello to everyone and told the guys from Boston (Tom Scholz) "Have a great show tonight." Joe turned around and walked out the door. I was still in shocked (and high) and thought that was so cool.
Well Boston came on and I was allowed on stage to watch them. They too were on their 1st tour and Tom Scholz was great. The band wasn't yet totally tight but they put on a good show with great classic Boston songs. As I was up on stage I noticed Jeff Beck walking around in the back and he had this cool 70's velvet dark blue jacket with jeans. I said to myself this guy looks amazing! and very hip.
After Boston's set I helped move some of the equipment off stage so they could get the equipment ready for Jeff Beck.
Half hour later the lights went down and the Jan Hammer Group took the stage. They would play 4 1/2 songs before Jeff came in on the jam. The stage was closed off to everyone but somehow the roadie from Jeff Beck noticed me and waved me on stage because he knew I couldn't see from the side. He got me a folding chair and put it next to Jan Hammer. I was surprised but didn't hesitate to take him up on the offer. I sat frozen next to Jan Hammer and only 15 feet away from Jeff Beck. I was amazed at my good fortune and was just mesmerized on Beck playing to an arena crowd, It was an amazing show and Jeff Beck was stunning.
After the show I saw Jeff Beck get into Joe Perry's Corvette and they sped off to Boston
That was a great day and evening and I thank you Michael Hill for hooking me up!
I was at the Jeff Beck, Jan Hammer, Heart & Boston concert at Providence Civic Center in 1976. Great show. My most vivid memory is Boston. It was their first concert in a large arena and they said they were really scared!
