    Fan reviews:

    By Leigh Barrett, Topeka, Kansas USA:
    The Dictators were horrible. Lousy sound mix and band acted like they'd rather be somewhere else. Real disappointing after all the hoopla they'd had in the print media.
    Thin Lizzy was good and tight. Lead singer, Phil Lynott, seemed to be really into the music. Band was excellent but could not hold a candle to the headliner, AC/DC.
    Angus and Bon were the best. Both had amazing energy and seemed to do everything right. I can't remember the set order but the energy was tremendous. At one point Bon carried Angus through the audience on his shoulders up into the balcony and the crowd went absolutely nuts. Angus had an early wireless transmitter duct taped to his guitar and it seemed to work pretty well. Although it was hard to tell at times as the crowd was really fired up and really loud.

    By Scott K. Harrington, Baton Rouge, LA:
    I have never reviewed a show, but in this case, I was there, 17 yrs old, thinking I was the only REAL fan of this NEW band. I took heat at school (Blue Springs) for claiming that this band would soon take over the world. Well, I took it, and I was right.
    Uptown Theater: Over 21, you set at round tables on the floor with wait staff serving drinks. Underage, thrown against a wall in a dark room, thrashed, searching for weapons by big security waiting to punch punk kids, then tossed up in the upper balcony. The Dictators were worn out, with very poor sound, It had to be a Malcolm setup, for what would change the term "Concert" forever. Lights out, Cliffs Bass Line, and then what I can only describe as a 747 jet at takeoff, consistently, for exactly 1 hr. Bon, shirtless holding a new 5th of Jack, cracks the top, lifts it to us, and blazes through all the songs they had,(all the songs I knew at the time.) Mal, Angus rip through the torrid set, one song after another, Disco dressed polyester jumpsuited grown men with drinks in hand, along with screaming women, running from their tables in horror. Bon carries Angus to us, Upper Balcony, last row, blowing sweat and Jack all over us prepared as well as stunned guests. Show ends on long thunderous E. Lights on, I am dared by a patron to run down to Phil's drum riser to see if the empty bottle of Jack was real, I did, It was, and it was snatched away from me by the same smiling 300lb security (fan) who through me upstairs. No disrespect to Thin Lizzy, who were very good, we stayed in respect, while the streaming 100's who were leaving, with looks of concussion's on their faces. I still have the 2.00 shirt and 7.00 stub. Check out their 78' tour schedule, remember, no fax, no cell phones, no conditions, just 8-tracks and old converted busses. It was just "Dog eat Dog"!

    By Mike Flanigan, :
    That Lizzy show was a huge night to remember for me. AC/DC was the warm up band and they absolutely brought down the house that eve. Thin Lizzy had a very rough night. Let me say that I'm a much bigger fan of Phil and The Boys than I am an AC/DC fan but on this night Phil and Gary in particular were having a sound troubles. I was expecting Robbo and Brian Downey and upon Lizzy taking the stage I was wondering who the new guys were. I walked away from the show thinking two things.

    1) AC/DC blew them off the stage and 2) I had to find out everything and anything about Gary Moore! He was jaw droppingly good BUT I've also never seen anyone get so angry on stage as he did that eve. Like I said, AC/DC had the crowd eating out of the palms of their hands. Bon put Angus on his shoulders and carried him out into the crowd and up into the balcony whilst still jamming. The crowd ate it up and Thin Lizzy had a very tough act to follow. Unfortunately they were having technical difficulties that eve. Phil's bass didn't sound right in the mix and they struggled from the get go to adjust the sound but Gary Moore's performance left a lasting impression. He was absolutely on fire. I was a 17 year old at the time and I'd already seen the likes of Iommi, Blackmore, Brian May, Buck Dharma, Ted Nugent, Alex Lifeson and had recently seen Van Halen no less than 4 times in one year on their first tour across America but what I saw out of Gary Moore had me convinced that he was as good if not better than all of them. Here is where it gets interesting though, Not once but twice Gary's guitar cut out on him while he was soloing.
    The first time it happened he was visibly angry but a roadie got things squared away. The second time it happened was during his extended solo during Me & The Boys Are Wondering...and he came unglued. He literally took off his Les Paul (don't recall exactly which one) and threw it at a roadie. Not figuratively, he literally threw it at him. Hard! And then he walked off the stage and let the band finish the song. The roadies got things squared away, again, and he came back out but they wrapped up the show quickly from there. To this day I've got every recording that either Phil or Gary have appeared on. Two of my all time favorites and while I wish I could have caught the band on a really good night instead of a troubled one, it's a performance I'll never forget.
