Show Notes

The first show in this city since July 1980 on the On Through The Night tour. The first show of a US tour supporting Ozzy Osbourne and his Blizzard Of Ozz band. They featured Ozzy on lead vocals, Tommy Aldridge on drums, Randy Rhoads (RIP) on guitar and Rudi Sarzo on bass. Rudi and Tommy would later play with future Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell in the touring lineup of Whitesnake during 1987/1988.

Ozzy guitarist Randy Rhoads died in a plane crash on March 19 1982 in Leesburg, Florida. The light plane crashed into a house where the band were staying killing the pilot, band hairdresser and Randy (who was 25). Ozzy had decided against going on the short flight himself.
