Rush with Steve Morse Band at Capital Centre, Landover, MD, USA


The third and last show my dad attended (well, except for Beach Boys shows much later). I’d talked up his ticket getting power, but now he wasn’t first in line and buying more tickets, so we were not in the third row. Besides me and my dad, the only friend and classmate I remember going with us was Tamer (later drummer in emmet swimming). I was unfamiliar with the Steve Morse Band, but impressed, especially with Rod.
According to Rush: Wandering the Face of the Earth, Geddy & Alex “hooked arms and swung each other around in circles.”

Kenny Loggins at Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, MD, USA


I don’t remember too much about this show. I know my dad took me, and I think we were on the lawn. All I know is I loved “Footloose” to death (my cassette of the soundtrack had one of the spools get out of place) and I was so happy when he played it (I had written out the lyrics so I could sing along).
