Heh - inappropriate pairings... (DBO)

That U2 show I mentioned--Grand Master Flash opened up for them, and they were great. Seems like that kind of thing was more common then. Maybe I'm wrong.

Late 80s, somewhere in the northeast (can't remember where - some big arena... maybe Worchester?). Stevie Ray Vaughan was opening for the Moody Blues.

I actually went to see Stevie Ray, but for me, the Moody Blues were a nice bonus.

The man was booed off the stage by a bunch of 40-something baby boomers who really, really, REALLY wanted to see the Moody Blues.

I almost left in disgust.

(I guess I was more angry at whoever thought that was a reasonable pairing than I was at the idiots, though.)

I remember seeing the Cars open for Kansas. New Wave youngsters mingled (badly) with older soft rockers; nobody respected anybody. Again, I enjoyed both acts, but not the audience.
