' ON THE ROAD
ummer '86 may go down as the biggest
ever for the concert business. All the stats
aren't in yet, but more than 40 of the top
100 chart acts were on tour between June and
the end of August. While Van Halen, Bob Dy-
lan/Tom Petty and ZZ Top along with the Am-
nesty International Tour went the stadium route
the vast majority of acts opted for smaller are-
nas, sometimes playing several dates in one city,
as did Bob Seger. Promoters say that the key to
this summer's success was the number of
strongudosb e blls, which included sheOutfield
opening for Starship, The Fixx for the Moody
Blues and Peter Frampton for Stevie Nicks.
Inside sources suggest that more major acts
were touring in America this summer than in pre
vious years because of the fear of terrorsm
abroad ... Emerson, Lake and Powell
launched their American tour on August 15 ..
Stevie Winwood will be touring the States in
September ... The long-awaited American tour
by the Pet Shop Boys will commence this fall
... The Fixx, fresh off their summer tour with
the Moody Blues, plans to play in the western
U.S. in September. If you thought the Fixx/
Moody Blues bill was an odd pairing of new and
old, Fixx drummer Adam Woods couldn't agree
with you more. The alternative was opening for
the Starship. According to Woods, "The
Moody Blues seemed the lesser of two evils,
really." Woods hastened to add that he doesn't
dislike the Moody Blues, but doesn't really like
them either ... Simple Minds' return to the
U. S. in September for the third leg of their "Once
Upon A Time" tour.

The heavy metal/hard rock industry isstill re-
covering from what will undoubtedly go
down asits bloodiest summer. On May 18,
a 19-year-old fan was murdered at a concert in
Takoma, Washington, at the beginning of Judas
Priest's nationwide tour. Earlier in the evening,
concertgoers overturned a police car and injured
a policeman. Less than a month later, a fan was
killed at a Los Angeles concert headlined by
Ozzy Osbourne. The 22-year-old jumped or fell
to his death during the opening gig by the speed-
metal band Metallica. Ten other fans were
treated for injuries and drug overdoses. Shortly
after the Judas Priest incident in Washington, a
New England concert promoter instituted a sum-
mer-long ban on heavy metal shows after fans
destroyed hundreds of seats at a Judas concert
in Connecticut. New Jersey promoter John
Scher says. "The heavy metal acts have got to
take control of the situation. If things start to get
really nasty at a concert, artists are going to have
to stop the show and talk to the audience." *
