Lamar Park

Wyoming

There was one big show at Lamar Park around 1976 called, I believe Electric Rodeo. Heart, Reo Speed-wagon, Johnny and Edgar Winter, Renaissance, Nils Lofgrin and a few other acts. There was not a cloud in the sky that day. Too bad that venue had to end.  Burg

    I remember driving my dad station wagon down there with bout 9-10 of us in it. Johnny and Edgar come out in white limo . Reo and Heart was the best there that day . It was very hot there and the smell of Mary Jane being smoked every where. Wish we could go back in time. That was my 1st concert too

    I remember the concert. It was Renaissance,Heart(actually dressed in white gowns),Nils Lofgren(Spirit canceled),REO Speedwagon,and Johnny and Edgar Winter with Rick Derringer. I had a poster that was tacked to telephone post. It was HOT and in the stands so many people fainted that the EMT’s couldn’t keep up. Between acts somebody announced that there was bad PCP being sold at one side of the stage and people ran that way to get some!

    I was at this concert in 1976…it was a very hot summer day and I remember the crowd going nuts when the one cloud covered the sun for about a minute as the crowd went crazy because of the heat.
    the Winter brothers were fantastic… I think that Todd Rugren was there as well as Fleetwood Mac… such a great day!
    my husband could not believe that this would be called the Electric Rodeo with all the bands I memtioned!

    My husband and I got into a discussion about this last night because he couldn’t believe that it would be called the Electric Rodeo with all the bands I memtioned! So glad I was able to confirm this.
