Welcome to CONCERT OVERLOAD, a place for sharing my concert-going experiences. My goal is to say a few words about each and every concert I've ever attended.

Concert #24 - The Pretenders at the LA Sports Arena (February 1987)
My first concert ever at the LA Sports Arena. I did manage to miss Iggy Pop's opening set. Chrissie and the boys were not bad, but they failed to really excite me. I had lousy seats, too far from the stage and the sound wasn't great either. One of the few things that I distinctly remember was Chrissie going down on her knees and kissing the stage that Iggy Pop walked on. She must have been a fan.
