The Beach Boys Played in Manchester 30 Years Ago [VIDEO]
Were you at this show at Arms Park in 1986?
Before the Verizon Wireless Arena was built, there weren't nearly as many concerts in New Hampshire as there are today. So in 1986 when the Beach Boys came to town, it was a pretty big deal.
Check out this coverage of the event from WMUR-TV. It was quite the scene, with protesters, fans running into closed off areas, arrests, disorderly conduct, people firing bottle rockets, and alcohol being confiscated. Yikes!
The video includes and interview with band members Mike Love and Bruce Johnson.
It should also be noted that WMUR's production quality has come a long way in 30 years!
