We are missing live music dearly here at Charleston Scene, but in the meantime our online concerts and backyard shows have done a solid job of quenching our thirst. In keeping with our theme of the new norm for live music, we have put together a trivia quiz all about famous concerts throughout popular music history. For our Head2Head battle we have a rematch of John Bryan and Kerry Bowers, who tied in last week’s quiz.

1. In 1977, The Sex Pistols famously crashed the Silver Jubilee of Elizabeth II, which celebrated the 25th anniversary of Elizabeth’s rise to the throne. The band expressed their disdain for the festivities by performing on a boat that sailed down what English river?

At that time Wozniak had just left what company that he helped co-found?

3. The Rolling Stones performed a show at Altamont Speedway in California in 1969, for which they hired members of what famous motorcycle gang to work as security, which tragically resulted in the death of one of the gang members?

7. Another famous 1964 concert was the “T.A.M.I. Show”, which is best known for a mind-blowing performance by what soul singer?
