I mainly went because it was Alice Cooper's first area appearance in nearly 5 years, but of course I would stay for the Scorpions. This tour mostly played to partially filled sheds but the LA date was at the 6,000 seat Universal Amphitheatre. Show up ticketless, it's totally sold out and there were a lot of people looking. This was when the main box office and entrance was over by the movie theatre. Discretely inquired about tickets with people standing around alone. One guy said he has a pit wristband but only wants $20 for a T shirt. I take out my wallet and he says "not here." I follow him thru a side entrance into the movie theatre and into a projection room and we make the deal there.

Alice was good, Scorpions were kinda good but it was obvious they were now just a nostalgia act. The new material they played was gawdawful.

I forget who opened, they sucked.
