1985 - REO Speedwagon (Wheels Are Tourin')(my favorite time I've seen them)

Cheap Trick was the opening act.

1985 - The Romantics (worst concert I had ever seen - the sound was bad and they had a circular lighted stage for the drummer which blinded the audience when he would hit the bass drum...which was every two seconds)

Ted Nugent was the opening act. (Skid Row was supposed to be there too, but they never showed up. We were wondering where Skid Row was when the guitar tech walked to the stage and started tuning up and doing the typical "hey, I'll never be famous so why don't I play a song". He played one song. The sound was so bad. He started playing another song, about one minute later I realized this wasn't the guitar tech this was Ted Nugent because I recognized Cat Scratch Fever)

That's the reason I made the list Farenheit. I sort of remember the topic of concerts missed somewhere, and I think I remember you mentioning a couple. I thought "hey I seen those" and thought maybe people would like to see my list.

The reason I could remember them was I kept the used tickets from each one. I keep them in a 3 1/2 X 5 photo book.

I have kept most if not all of my concert stubs since I saw KISS and New England back in '79 on the Dynasty tour. One of the best shows I remember was Queensryche opening for Def Leppard in '88 on the 2nd leg of the Hysteria tour. On the first leg, Tesla opened. Cool shows. Weirdest pairing had to be Type O Negative opening for Queensryche in '95.
