January 13, 1984. It was a Friday the 13th and a full moon. Perfect backdrop for Ozzy’s “Bark at the Moon” concert. Ass kickin’ Motley Crue was the warm up band. Hard to find a better full bore rock concert than this one. Although the show was awesome,what happened before the concert is what makes it memorable to me.
We had about 6 guys, in a borrowed van, with a quarter keg and other party tools. 5 of us got tickets in advance.The 6th said he would get one from the always present scalpers. He was gone about 20 min. and when he got back he was laughing and singing. He ended up finding the “stupid criminal”, and got his ticket for less than we did. Either way, it was an excellent trip.
