I used to love the free 4th of July concerts with the California Symphony. We heard but did not see Stevie Nicks while working in a food booth as a band fundraiser. We also saw a lot of the oldies shows there.

Metallica for whom the bell tolls (Damaged Justice Tour) 1989 at the pavillion was crazy seats got ripped out and thrown and lots of the grass got ripped up and thrown. I was 16 years old. Awesome!
I think the Pavilion banned them from ever playing there again.

Never saw that many shows there but remember Joe Satriani/Eric Johnson
and Dio which was incredible! Would’ve love to catch Merle Haggard there back in ‘87 but my folks had crap taste in music!

I worked for BASS at the headquarters on 22nd St in Oakland. Fun place to work for a young person and the owner, Mr Roller Derby Jerry Seltzer was a a hoot.
That ticket is from “newer” stock and it no longer has the Mr Bass with his top hat
