I found two old
tickets in a box downstairs.
The ticket from 1983 was
my first Uriah Heep concert.
UH were three times in
Detmold, in 1992 they were not in
the "Rock heaven" in
Herford, because the club burned down a few
days before UH came.
A nice day and many
greetings from Detmold.
I have been looking for this ticket stub for many months
and I finally found it. The only problem is that it does
not list Uriah Heep as the opening act.
They opened for Blue Oyster Cult on the Head First tour.
I can remember the show like it was yesterday especially
when they performed "Stay On Top."
I still have the concert jersey from that night (yes 25
years ago) with the T-Rex walking into the guilitine -
grey with black sleeves.
I can't remember who was in the band at that time but I
can't believe that none of the current band members
remember this tour section and can vouch for the show.
This show was at the Poughkeepsie Civic Center in NY
(about 2 hours north of NYC.) The place holds about 5500
and they either have seats or "open dance floor" as they
used to post on the tickets. The acoustics are
absolutely terrible and when you have a loud rock band
it's almost like listening to complete noise.
None the less it was a great show and my first show
which is in part why I remember it so much.
You don't have anything listed on the gig list for this
Please let me know if anyone else can recall this show.
I'd love to hear about it. Thanks.
