    • I was at this concert. Yngwie Malmsteen and Alcatraz opened this show. Probably my favorite day I've spent at the park. We got there early, hit some rides and had the time of our lives. This was when Ted Nugent was still a huge concert draw and would have no problem filling MSG let alone the arena at GA. At the best of my knowledge I leave what I think was the set list he performed that day below. This was mostly from memory but I did compare it to the few other set list I could dig from Nugent's penatrator tour. Wasn't much out there just like there isn't any photos or videos or even some bootleg recording. This was when taking cameras into concerts was a no no. There was alot of shenanigans going on in the parking lot and around all corners and cubby holes that make up the park, and since this is a family friendly site I'll just say we partied pretty hard that day. I think we rode the ferris wheel and skyride multiple times 😉. Hope theres some other people who remember that day and leave their memories. Here's that list.🤘🏼
