Concerts: Williams Brice vs Memorial Stadium
This is not a smack thread! Please don't get this thread deleted.
I was wondering, if you just looked at concerts, which of the two stadiums has the edge? Which of the two venues has the hands-down better concert history?
I don't know EVERY concert that has been performed at either venue. You have to help me, if there's something missing. But I managed to dig up:
Clemson Memorial Stadium:
Pink Floyd, May 12 1994
U2 in 1997 (Pop Mart)
Rage Against the Machine in 1997 (Edit: opening for U2)
Rolling Stones in 1989
Def Leppard in 1988
The Eagles in 1996
Ozzy Osbourne and Alice in Chains in 1992
Elton John & Billy Joel in 1992
George Strait, Tim McGraw, Dixie Chicks, Kenny Chesney, Mark Wills, and Joe Dee Messina in 1999
Metallica & Guns N Roses, with Faith No More , Sept 7, 1992
U2 in 1992 (Zoo TV) (Public Enemy opening)
Paul McCartney in 1993
Rolling Stones (Blind Melon opening), Sept 25, 1994
Willie Nelson, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, etc in 1996 (Farm Aid)
Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, LeAnn Rimes, Gary Allen, and Luke Bryan in 2008
George Strait, Alan Jackson, Lonestar, Lee Ann Womack, Brad Paisley, Sara Evans (April 24, 2001)
Also, you can consider sound of the venue, seating, etc. in your vote.
[I have to say, before we even consider this, that the Grateful Dead played at the Coliseum on HALLOWEEN NIGHT 1985, which frankly blows this entire contest away, and it was the only time they ever played in South Carolina, but I'm going to stick to the original contest so that show doesn't count. Also, I found out that the fricking DOORS played the Coliseum in 1971, and Kiss on the Destroyer tour, and the Allman Brothers on the "Brothers & Sisters" tour in 1973, and SABBATH on the "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" tour, and to top it all off ELVIS. That's just scratching the surface of the badassness of the concerts at the Coliseum. So we beat Littlejohn hands down, but anyway.]
