The Gusman Cultural Center was located in the heart of downtown Miami. I looked it up online and discovered that it has been renamed to the Olympia Theater. One thing you can say about Miami—it’s completely different from what it was 35 years ago.
Anyway, I went to this concert with my friend Jim. I was pretty psyched, since I had never seen Thorogood and liked his guitar playing, and also because I was getting to check out a venue that I had never been to before, and I had heard great things about the Gusman.
The venue was really nice and the acoustics were superb. What I remember from the show was that George was great. He totally rocked and I recall being particularly impressed with the sax player. Saxophone definitely adds a unique quality to a band’s sound.
Sorry I don’t have too much more to say about this show. It’s one of those that I know I enjoyed and can still conjure a vague impression of the band on stage, but that’s about all.
