33 years ago, the ‘circus’ was back on the 'eve of' and 'day of' April Fools in Portland, Maine. The Grateful Dead returned to the Cumberland County Civic Center for the fifth time and and their first two-night stand.
35 years ago today, Billy Squier sold out the Civic Center. Listen to the Blimp's longtime buddy, Maine’s King of Comedy Bob Marley tell the story of his very first concert on that fateful night, March 21,1983 to help us remember this one. "Stroke Me, Stroke Me!"
It was 41 years ago at the Central Maine Youth Center in Lewiston! The one and only Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band made their second trek to the Pine Tree State on March 19, 1977. What a way to kick-off springtime in Maine, eh?
It's is a mighty significant anniversary for Portland, Maine! 41 years ago today, the very first event happened at the Civic Center. And of course here in Blimpville, the first event was a Rock Concert!
