    The Bangles opened for Cyndi Lauper IIRC. I was a volunteer usher at the show. I think it was Fall '84 or spring '85.

    Billy Idol headlined in the fall of '84, not sure if he was an opener earlier though.

    I was there! I went to see the Flock of Seagulls but the Go-Go's were fun too.

    The Pressure Boys opened for Billy Idol.

    I also remember Neil Young and the Shocking Pinks playing in the the fall of '83.

    Thx for the help on this.

    I thought it was one of the two, and now it appears as both.

    One of my biggest regrets

    Not seeing Dave Matthews Band in Cameron on April 7, 1995. Toward the conclusion of my second year of law school (just after "The Back Surgery Season" had mercifully come to a conclusion). The song that eventually became #41 (then entitled "41 Police") debuted that night.

    Damned first marriages . . . . .

    I was there for those as well. A trip down my faded memory lane.

    Simon and Garfunkel

    Slightly off topic - but one of the most awesome concerts I have ever attended was Simon and Garfunkel in the Indoor Stadium (not yet Cameron). It must have been 1967 or 1968 (the years blend together now). They sat on tall bar stools at mid court and sang with only a bassist to accompany them.
    The close harmony of their records was completely there live. They just blew my mind.

    As long as we're off topic, I had to jump in and say that Simon and Garfunkel's concert roughly fifty years ago (I'm fuzzy on the date too ) also is one of the most memorable concerts I ever attended.
    What stands out to me to this day is when Simon said he wanted everyone to appreciate what a great voice Garfunkel had - and then Garfunkel did the next number a cappella.
    You're correct in remembering the minimal accompaniment which was impressive enough, but that a cappella number was just amazing.
    Thanks for reminding me

    Marcus my words, if I didn't catch this, another spelling police master would have busted your posting hand. Still friends?

    I spell it "Paige" because "I" was in the middle of it.


    (How's that for covering an otherwise dumb misspelling?)

    Clever. I'll bet they were great shows.

    Add me to the list for that one. It was pretty early in my freshman year: Fall of '82. Met a girl from Roxboro. That was a good night.

    I remember several friends/classmates going to this concert (I was in high school at the time).

    In searching for when the very exciting Blues Traveler/Spin Doctors mega concert was in the early 90s, I came across this old thread on the same concert topic:

    Concerts in Cameron/Paige

    Will you let an old geezer play? From an earlier era Louis Armstrong in Cameron, Kingston Trio and Jose Greco in Paige were new experiences for this freshman from small town NC.
