This was a bloody great show. Papa Roach opened & they were full on from the get go. Motley Crue were great. Nice to still be able to see them in a decent size venue…& on the front row 🙂 I remember when they played here back in 1996, a mate tried to video the gig. He managed 30mins & they caught him. Technology has changed since then & i know of someone at this gig who was trying to capture the I.E.M. feed ! (It’s never seen the light of day as far as i know)
This was an (un) organised bus trip we went on. At the time,it was an uncommon thing for peeps to be travelling to other countries for gigs.There was only a couple of companies doing it. We had a hotel in Frankfurt the night before the gig. It was still a long drive to Karlsruhe though ! When we got to the stadium the next day,we weren’t early enough: still queued up outside whilst Accept were on.We saw every other band though. This was also the last but one gig that Dave lee roth played with Van Halen !! A good experience,but, the bus journey was a killer.
