40th Anniversary of the last World Series of Rock

Written by

It was 40 years ago this week in 1980 that the final World Series of Rock Concert was held at Cleveland Stadium.  For $12.50 you got to see Def Leppard, Eddie Money, The J Geils Band and Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.  I remember emceeing and making announcements about things like…"if you took any purple pills…go to the free clinic tent immediately…before you pass out."  But all in all everyone had a great time.  And right before Bob Seger took the stage he told me he’d never seen a crowd that big.  He and the band were pumped…and they delivered one heck of a show!  If you were there, enjoy those memories!
