I remember that show but I didn't go. I was 12 at the time and had only been to one concert.
Funny to see how some of the bands have risen and fallen since then. Missing Persons got a higher billing than U2? w00t
I would never have guessed that The Divinyls were around back then.

I bet there were near deaths on Sunday. That woulda been a long, long day if you didn’t pace yourself.

Dale Bozzio half naked gets top billing in my book - music not so much.

The Beat is a ska band that peaked about ‘83. Mirror in the Bathroom is worth a listen and coincidentally if COVID never happened they woulda been on the West Coast swing of a tour this month.

Little Steven was Springsteen's guitarist, and he played Silvio on The Sopranos.

Was that the order of the bands? Same as on the poster?

You’d think Motley Crue would lead with Van Halen closing. Or Maybe everyone’s so plastered after about 6 bands, the top bands would rather get in / get out.

Some of you guys lived through the coolest era.

There's no superstar/bigger than life bands today. Watching videos of early Metallica, Aerosmith, etc. rocking out to 50k plus fans is awesome.

I need a time machine.

I grew up near there, the smog was horrible then. I didn’t go because of that.
