Diep Purdle at Artwood Stadiumhttp://pics.ww.com/d/195750-1/1985+-+Flint_+Michigan.jpg
Two things I noticed...The $15.00 ticket price and the $0 service charge.I miss good concerts. No one comes to where I live now, and when they do, it's really expensive.
I saw Journey, Pat Benetar, and Eddie Money - triple bill - at Atwood Stadium in 1980. I'll have to dig out the ticket stub, but I'm pretty sure it was $11.50. Concert prices really started to skyrocket during the '80s.
Where is Atwood Stadium? I saw concerts at the IMA; but most all the concerts I saw between 1969=1979 were at Pine Knob, The Palace, that stadium in downtown Detroit (I forgot the name).
I was at that show... Blackfoot opened... a truly amazing show.
I was there and it was so big to me and my friend annie as we were in high school and we could be apart of a event that now is a part of our mind that oh my god we were there I wont ever forget the lights people music it is always in my head and never forgot thankyou annie , Theresa mack for letting me have fun!!!!
sweet concert! I remember the Journey/Pat Benetar concert I think WWCK sponsored it. My friend and I rode our bikes up to the atwood wall to hear some of it. Did I mention we rode from court and franklin and I was 10 and I still have not told my mom and dad yet.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
