Kinda Very OT: International Amphitheatre


Good day to all BCB'ers.


A few minutes ago, I was talking to a friend of mine about our concert experiences. I told him about how I have never gone to a big concert on my own, and how I'd love for my first concert to be that Muse concert in March.

I soon recalled the many times back in the 90's when I used to go to Mexican concerts almost every weekend with my parents. I've seen a lot of Mexican artists, and remember a few acts, but the thing that stayed stuck in my mind was going to see all or most of these acts at the so-called International Amphitheatre.

It always seemed so grand, so colossal - and dirty. When I think of it, I kinda get the same nostalgic feeling as the one I get when I visit Wrigley. Of course, I don't think anything can compare to the Friendly Confines, but the IA gives me a similar feeling, of the times when I dressed in my little cowboy suits and sombrero and went with my dad and godfather to see a great performance by Joan Sebastian on horseback. I didn't have the fortune of growing up with my dad taking me to ballgames at Wrigley (he never understood baseball and always falls asleep watching it), but I did have the fortune of him taking me to these concerts at the old Amphitheatre.

Now, I know most of the BCB readers are old enough to remember it. And as such, I'd like to know if anyone here had similar experiences there, or if they could please provide some photos of it. I did a web search, but I didn't find much to give me clear memories of it. I understand it was used for much more than concerts, so feel free to add any experiences outside of them. There were sports held there as well as some national conventions, so, if you were there for something, please share the experience.

Thank you all, and Go Cubs.
