JFK Stadium
Philadelphia, PA
July 13, 1985
Just a handful of memories
from this one:

8am morning wake-up call by BLACK SABBATH!!
THIS WAS
MY BREAKFAST!!!!











It was
110 DEGREES!!!!!
They had fire hoses
on the floor to spray on the crowds! We kept running to the restrooms to fill up milk jugs of water to pour on ourselves! The heat and humidity were extremely intense! But we never even thought of leaving!
So the concert went from about 8 in the morning....
To about 11 or 12 at night!!!!!
It was incredible!!!
And definitely a
test of endurance!!!

Teddy Pendergrass
singing, so beautifully,
"Reach Out and Touch",
from his wheelchair,
no less!!! I cried,
but was also very
inspired by this.
