On August 2nd, 1980, Atwood Stadium in Flint saw a massive show with Journey, Eddie Money, and Pat Benatar.

Atwood Stadium in Flint was the place to be back on Saturday night, August 2nd, 1980. The stadium came alive for an outdoor concert featuring Journey, Eddie Money, and Pat Benatar.

Just reading the poster for it that I came across online takes you back to a much different time when it comes to buying tickets for concerts. Tickets for this show were only $10.50 in advance and were available at the IMA SPORTS ARENA Box Office. Fans could also purchase tickets through the mail by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope and a certified check or money orders to the arena as well.

The outdoor concert, presented by Son of Bamboo, started at 2 pm with the gates opening to the public at 1 pm. I can't lie, I would have loved to be at this show. It's hard to picture but I'm sure that a full-on concert inside Atwood Stadium would have been awesome.
