Journey

Band: Journey
Opening Act: Loverboy
Date: October 23, 1981
Ticket Price: $9.95

I think this was the Escape tour. I bet everyone remembers tunes like Who’s Crying Now, Open Arms, Stone in Love, & Don’t Stop Believin’. I saw them several times in concert. And I always enjoyed watching Neal Schon play the guitar. I have to admit that I usually change the radio station these days when I hear them. But back in the early 80’s they were a class act!

Pat Benatar

Band: Pat Benatar
Opening Act: David Johansen
Date: September 24, 1981
Ticket Price: $8.95

I think this was sort of the make-up/redo concert from last year when she passed out. I might have the dates switched around. But who cares, right? I remember looking forward to the concert because I wanted to see Neil “Spyder James” Giraldo (Pat’s Husband). I liked his guitar style.

Band: Pat Benatar
Opening Act: Copter
Date: November 16, 1980
Ticket Price: $6.98

This was their Crimes of Passion tour. Remember “Hit me with your best shot” & “Hell is for children?” I’ve seen Pat Benatar a few time and I think this was the show where she passed out on stage a few times. They finally took her to the hospital and the show was over. They said it was exhaustion.
