    I saw Foo Fighters open for Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
    I saw Weezer play before Linkin Park.
    The Distillers were the first band on the main stage at the last travelling Lalapalooza......they were great.

    My vote as well......it was Metallica opening for Ozzy. Metallica was Master of Puppets and Ozzy was Ultimate Sin. Ozzy during Bark at the Moon was great (I believe Motley Crue opened on that tour however)......he seemed coked out and high on hairspray for Ultimate Sin. Saw Cliff for Ride the Lightning and Masters! :toptip:

    KISS was great on their first reunion tour in '96.....went to see them again a few years later and they blew. Ted Nugent opened and destroyed them.

    You're right, was the Ultimate Sin tour. :hat:

    Also saw whatever KISS tour it was that Night Ranger opened for them. Call me crazy, but Night Ranger blew kiss away that evening. :pimp:

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Shine again.

    I saw that tour. Actually it was the last U.S. date with Cliff. Hampton coliseum 1986.
    the crew played pranks on them the whole set....dropping shit on Lars from the lighting trusses and taking away his drum kit while he was still playing.
    they left him with a bass, snare, high hat and one crash. :jj:

    AC/DC was always one of my favs. I saw Yngwie open up for them in 85 (I think) and I thought he blew them away which really disturbed me for some time.

    I saw both Nirvana and Pearl Jam open for the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the same show.

    Both of them blew the RHCP off the stage, especially Nirvana.

    I saw Metallica open for Ozzy on the Master of Puppets tour.

    Metallica totally stomped Ozzy.
