Tower Theatre

May 29, 1984 – David Gilmour - Tower Theatre

Date May 29, 1984
Band David Gilmour
Tour About Face
Venue Tower Threatre
City Upper Darby, PA
Who saw this show with me? Tim Weaver

Notes This show was memorable for the following reasons:

  1. This was my very first concert at "The Tower" -- my favorite concert venue of all time.
  2. In 1984 I never ever thought I'd see Pink Floyd live. What a thrill it was to hear "Money," "Run Like Hell," and "Comfortably Numb" live. The best part, the tickets were $10.50!
  3. Tim Weaver and I sat in the VERY last row - upper balcony.
  4. Gilmour's second guitar player was Mick Ralphs founding member of Mott the Hoople and Bad Company.

Feb 27, 1987 – The Kinks – Tower Theatre

I don't remember  this concert very well other than their performance of the song "It." I recall there was a lot of dance and theatrics. It was cool. Prior to seeing this show I had seen The Kinks at the Spectrum and JFK Stadium so this was my first time seeing them in a small venue. God save The Kinks.

Feb 17, 1985 – Joan Jett and the Blackhearts – Tower Theatre

My girlfriend and I were supposed to go out for a Valentine diner, but while at work, my boss gave me free tickets to see Joan Jett and the Blackhearts with special guests The Ramones at the Tower Theatre. I thought, this is better than going out to dinner but my girlfriend thought otherwise . We got into a big fight. I remember saying, "It's Joan Jett. It's the Ramones. It's rock and roll!" She told me, "It's Valentine's Day!" and told me to spend it with Joan Jett and my hand. So, me and my hand and my friend Tim Weaver saw one of the loudest shows of my life.

Feb 16, 1993 – Keith Richards / Soul Asylum – Tower Theatre

Keith Richards is my rock hero. Why? It's probably a combination of Richards' swagger, endurance, style, and guitar playing that rolls into what I believe defines the essence of rock and roll. As a teenager, when I discovered that The Rolling Stones were 'The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World,'

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!
