Year = '73
Venue = State Farm Show Arena, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA (stopped hosting concerts some time in the '80's after some people died at a KISS show)
Opener = Manfred Mann's Earth Band
Warm-Up/Show Stealer = Blue Öyster Cult
Headliner = Uriah Heep

i went to see BÖC, as they were (and still are one of) my fav heavy rock band, they did not disappoint and blew Uriah Heep off the stage.
Manfred Mann's Earth Band was quite alright and, imho, performed a better show than the headliner.

will always remember my first concert... that's when i fell forever in love with live music.

[my second concert was Golden Earring]
