(CAROLINA PETRA FAN) Here's two concerts not on the list that I went to:

Thursday, May 29, 1997 - Ridgecrest Conference Center's Spilman Auditorium - near Asheville, NC - i can't remember who opened for them (this was the first time I got to see Petra
Saturday, March 13, 1999 - Furman University's Timmons Arena - Greenville, SC - Petra opened up for the Newsboys on the Step Up to the Microphone Tour (got John and Lonnie's autograph)


***

The Ridgecrest conference center is in Black Mountain, North Carolina. I would bet that John Cox and Jonathan (former lead singer for the Christian hard rock band, Novella) opened the show. They were listed as support for the Petra Praise II: We Need Jesus tour. You can see a poster at the link below, which mentions the Ridgecrest show. Do either of those names happen to ring a bell?

Either way, we'll add the two shows below to the archive.

Thanks for the input!

May 29, 1997 – Black Mountain, NC, Ridgecrest Conference Center Spilman Auditorium
Mar 13, 1999 – Greenville, SC, Furman University Timmons Arena (with The Newsboys)

Thanks Dan! I will add these dates to the list.

I have checked some of these Battleplans, but many are not very precise if they are early printed.
So we cannot trust them 100%.

I saw Petra live at Massey Hall in Toronto, Ontario on Saturday Feb 29, 1992. I still have the ticket stub. I remember they added a show on the 28th due to high demand. They then added a third show on March 1. I had a tour sweatshirt that listed a bunch of cities, but I can't find it right now.

This is a tour calendar for the 1986 Australia tour. Hard to read, but probably just enough to figure out the dates and locations. John posted this on his site, so if we really can't read, I'm sure he/Sue can provide a higher resolution/better quality picture.

Looks like this:
Nov 28, 1986 - Sydney, Australia, Sydney Hordern Pavilion
Nov 29, 1986 - Melbourne, Australia, Melbourne Festival Hall
Dec 01, 1986 - Perth, Australia, Perth Entertainment Centre
Dec 02, 1986 - Adelaide, Australia, Adelaide Thebarton Town Hall
Dec 04, 1986 - Brisbane, Australia, Brisbane Festival Hall

http://www.johnwschlitt.com/fans/tourlistpetra.htm

Nov 28 was already on the list, but with a different location in Sydney.
I am not sure which one is right.
