    It looks like Dylan and Petty were actually co-headliners at this show, and Dylan got top billing solely on the basis of seniority. In real life, Dylan and Petty are close friends, having worked in the Travelling Wilburys and Dylan playing backup on Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.”

  • Lurky McLurkson says:

    I would of switched the billing and, of course, put the puppet show last.

  • Bob says:

    The last time I was at the Civic Center was for an Janet Jackson concert back in the 90s.
