April 1, 1985 – George Thorogood & The DE Destroyers – Spectrum

Decent if unspectacular show from George Thorogood, who couldn't treat every arena they played as the local bar. But I remember this night for its end, when The Spectrum announced that the Villanova Wildcats beat the Georgetown Hoyas, 66-64, to win the NCAA Men’s Division I tournament. The victory was Villanova’s first-ever national championship.

March 09, 1988 – Bruce Springsteen – The Spectrum

Honestly, this Springsteen concert was somewhat of a disappointment for me. This show just didn't have the same energy or spark like my three other Springsteen shows I've seen in the past. This show was more focused and choreographed than than what I had seen before.

Feb 14, 1988 – Frank Zappa – Tower Theatre

remember Frank accepting gifts from the audience and then later he conducted us prior to the second set. The highlights for me included City of Tiny Lights and the Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven. What a way to spend Valentine's Day!
