Feb 28, 1983 – Aerosmith / Anvil – The Spectrum

Date February 28, 1983Band Aerosmith Tour Rock in a Hard Place Opening Band Anvil Venue The Spectrum City Philadelphia, PA Who saw this show with me? Steve Oakley

Notes Not only was this one of the worst shows I ever saw it may have been one of the quickest too lasting no more than an hour and a half. The band (minus Joe Perry and Brad Whitford) was wasted and sounded terrible. My buddy Steve and I left the concert disappointed and talked about how we should have stayed home to watch the final episode of M*A*S*H. When we reached the car I realized that I locked my keys inside. This is 1983 and there are no cell phones so in 20 degree temperatures we walked back to the Spectrum to find a phone to call our families for assistance. Steve's sister arrived first and took him home. I stayed behind to wait for my mother and my spare key. Needless to say - mom wasn't happy.

Interesting to note, after all these years, I still have never seen the final episode of M*A*S*H.
