We Go to Concerts

From my first concert, Stephen Stills in 1973 at the Long Beach Arena, over the years to Jackson Browne to Jethro Tull to Elton John and many others, music has been an integral part of the Hile family. Of course, it all started with my grandfather Wilbur Hile, who played trombone in the silent movie days at the Orpheum Theater in Hannibal, Missouri (pictured below).

What also follows are photos from three concerts. The Dixie Chicks returned to the stage in 2016 and this concert was at the Toyota Ampitheatre in Wheatland, California. Willie Nelson played the Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley in 2015 and Barbra Striesand played the SAP Arena in San Jose that same year.

Stay tuned for photos from our next concert in July, 2021 as The Dales will play in Sacramento, California.
