    Usually opening acts annoy the hell out of me as I just want to get to the main show, but some good ones were:

    Bryan Adams opening for Foreigner in 1982
    Joe Walsh opening for Foreigner in 1985
    Ted Nugent opening for Aerosmith in 1986 (in theory)
    Living Colour opening for the Rolling Stones in 1989
    Ted Nugent opening for KISS in 2000 (once Skid Row got out of the way).

    Honourable mention: Bugs Bunny cartoon(s) preceding Yes in 1984!

    Hey, Eddymon - was that Foreigner/Joe Walsh show the '85 show at the Centrum in Worcester? If so, we were at the same show!

    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.
