Dude, this list is a FRAUD... The YES performance was postponed due to weather...

I now have to question the credibility of your entire list now....what other shows are made up on this list??? Did Styx even tour with The Babys??????

I am shocked....

I would assume Loverboy was the headliner on that bill.

Does anyone remember those $5 shows at the Cap Centre in the last 70's? I think it was called Summerfest or something. Carnival in the parking lot, and a week full of shows for cheap prices. I saw Molly Hatchet and Loverboy one night, and Triumph a couple of nights later. I think there was maybe a Kool and the Gang show, and possibly others. For the record, Molly Hatchet was pretty good, and Triumph was great. Loverboy, not much to see there...

My brother saw that Triumph show. First concert any of my siblings had ever been to. I was unbearably jealous of him at the time.

is the point of this thread to post shows you've gone to on the specified date or just post shows that happened on said date?

I saw Triumph at the Patriot Center in 1986.  The opener was none other than Yngwie J. Malmsteen.  And yes, he did unleash the fuckin' fury.
