Concert Reviews, Songs Beginning with O
This page is for reviews of concerts people have seen during the 80s and
reviews of tours that more recently focus on vintage 80s groups (like Depeche
Mode or Bow Wow Wow, etc.). The first reviews here are from the old message
board, so they might look a little familar. Hope no one minds me reformatting
their original messages.

/ Halloween 1982-1995
I am a survivor of many live shows from the 80's. The Police, Untouchables, Simple Minds, The Cure and so on. However, every Halloween, (thirteen of 'em for me) without fail, we from the San Fernando Valley were treated to the most "rad" ska party of them all...the band formerly known as "THE MYSTIC KNIGHTS OF THE OINGO BOINGO" donned their Jester suits and descended upon the Universal Amphitheatre. Danny Elfman ALWAYS kicked ass on stage. The horn section blasting! Everyone...I MEAN EVERYONE in the audience singing and jumping up and down. Damn!!! I must say, I have never seen anything like an Oingo Boing "Concert/Party" and I don't imagine I ever will. I was present for the very last live performance at the Amphitheatre. The huge backdrop read "Los Dios de los Muertos" or "The Day of the Dead." I'm very fortunate...However...I really miss those dude. Sometimes...time sucks.
