    This radio station has been counting down the top fifty concerts of all-time in the Buffalo area, check out number 35:

    Monsters Rock The Stadium!!

    On July 19th 1988, a heavy metal line up calling themselves "THE MONSTERS OF ROCK" rolled in to Orchard Park and electrified an adoring crowd of 40,000 plus.

    Kingdom Come, Metallica, Dokken, The Scorpions, and headlining the show, Van Halen, put on one of the most powerful shows ever at Rich Stadium. The opening acts pulled their weight, but the band the majority of the crowd came to see delivered in a big way.

    With Michael Anthony, and Alex Van Halen keeping the band in time , Eddie Van Halen playing flawlessly, and Sammy Hagar's vocals never sounding better, Van Halen proved to be the biggest monster on MONSTERS OF ROCK day.

    97Rock listener Bonnie Schaff recalls the day was "very hot, very loud"...she recalls, "the crowd, thankfully, was continually hosed down, or we would have never made it!"

    #35 in 97Rock's 50 defining classic rock Buffalo concerts...Rich Stadium plays host to rock and roll monsters .
