Midland/Odessa used to be on the hard rock circuit for conerts but Ticketmaster kinda killed the acts coming to the smaller venues like the Ector County Collesium and The Chap Center in Midland.
I miss the days of Bill White annoucing "The Red Rocker returns to West Texas...Sammy Hagar Aug 25 at the Ector County Collseium...tickets on sale now...a Pace-Stardate Production..."
Ok gotta add more to my favorite concerts list...reading this thread reminds me of them.
Beach Boys 1986 @ Buffalo lake in Lubbock. Played for 3 hours and Dean Torrence made a special appearence and did Dead Man's Curve with them.
Vince Gill w/ Patty Lovless and Bryan White GSU Stadium in Statesboro, GA 1996. Vice alone played for 3 1/2 Hours.
Then there was my interview with George Strait before a roping contest in Big Spring, TX 1990 and getting to watch his show from backstage in 1991.
The most memorable was a state fair concert that was rained out all 3 days. So, the event was held inside the the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and all the entertainers stuck around to play one concert. 12 straight hour of country music from Willie, Waylon, Paycheck, Haggard and a bunch of others. I still have Paycheck's take this job and shove it T-shirt.
After reading all these, I need to post more shows now, lol
David Lee Roth/Cinderella/Extreme - Jones Beach Theater, around 1991
Slayer/Testament - L'Amour Brooklyn 1988
Tim McGraw/Faith Hill - Philips Arena 2007
Ozzy/Metallica - Nassau Coliseum 1985
Motorhead/Manowar - Sundance, Bayshore, NY
I could keep up at this for an hour, lol.
Anyone remember actually having to wait in line for tickets? Sleeping at either the venue or ticket place? With the advent of the internet and phone ordering, it takes all the fun out of it.
