Dee Haley's bio is all about the concerts. Since her first concert, Dee's favorite pastime has been checking out live music. With hundreds (maybe thousands) of concerts under this "musicologist's" belt, picking the top five shows was next to impossible. Dee's first and favorite concert was KISS, at "The Aud," in 1979. The following are some of the most memorable concerts on her list. Her top five concerts, a few honorable mentions, and to keep things interesting, her top five music festivals too.
