We were there!
That was my first concert.
Waylon Jennings MANY years ago
The very first concert I saw at the Pavilion was Ronnie Milsap in 1981.
I remember seeing, Heart (2), Tesla, Aerosmith, Guns N Roses, Bryan Adams, Wynonna, Tom Petty, Adam Ant, Hank Williams Jr. Ah the good ole days!!!!
I’M ALL OUT OF LOVE…..I’M SO LOST WITHOUT YOU!!!!!!
I used to love the free 4th of July concerts with the California Symphony. We heard but did not see Stevie Nicks while working in a food booth as a band fundraiser. We also saw a lot of the oldies shows there.
Metallica for whom the bell tolls (Damaged Justice Tour) 1989 at the pavillion was crazy seats got ripped out and thrown and lots of the grass got ripped up and thrown. I was 16 years old. Awesome!
I think the Pavilion banned them from ever playing there again.
Air Supply…..”gag me with a spoon” as we used to say.
Abba in 78
Here’s a trio. Jimmy Buffet and Donny and Marie and some local orchestras.
SRV Many time’s
Never saw that many shows there but remember Joe Satriani/Eric Johnson
and Dio which was incredible! Would’ve love to catch Merle Haggard there back in ‘87 but my folks had crap taste in music!
Neil Sedaka 1978
We went to the night after opening night and saw Chuck Mangione. Feels so good…………
Day on the Green……….whatever happened to those?
I worked for BASS at the headquarters on 22nd St in Oakland. Fun place to work for a young person and the owner, Mr Roller Derby Jerry Seltzer was a a hoot.
That ticket is from “newer” stock and it no longer has the Mr Bass with his top hat
