Rod Stewart Brings Young Turks to KC

Live Review: Rod Stewart at Kemper Arena in Kansas City, MO, January 30, 1982

Upon arriving for a visit a few months earlier, my buddy Gregg informed me we’d be rod stewart | Rod Stewart - Young Turks | Recuerdos de Aquellos ...camping out at Caper’s Corner that Friday night. Caper’s was a record store/ticket outlet. Way before internet ticketing. So, we slept in the car that cold night, with only Boone’s Farm to keep us warm. When we awoke, there were a few people already lined up at the door. We imagined them tiptoeing past our car while we slept.

Anyway, Rod did not disappoint at the concert. One of the great shows I saw in the 80s, Rod was all over the stage, frequently throwing the mic stand at least 20 feet in the air and catching it. He was promoting his huge Tonight I’m Yours album with the #5 hit “Young Turks.” We were on the floor around the 19th row. Great time.
