Re: Petra Compete Tour list - help add missing dates.

******* Hello. I remember going to a Petra concert in 1986 while I was at OCS in Newport, RI. The concert would have been held between the months of March and August. It was at a small Christian college in either Mass or CT. Anyone remember this concert? I've been to three other Petra concerts, but ...

Re: Petra Compete Tour list - help add missing dates.

[quote=p-freak post_id=177539 time=1610639536 user_id=47] I found a new 1982 tour calendar in CCM magazine May 1982. Most dates agree with what's on the list, but there are a few conflicts and some additional dates. I'll list it in its entirety and leave you to decide how you want to include these d...

Petra Web Page c. 2000

Hi, all,

I got a lead on a Petra show at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs around the year 2000.

Does anyone happen to know what the address was for the band's Web page around that time? That might help nailing down the show date.

Thanks, in advance, for any help you're able to give!

Cincinnati 1991-1992

Hi, all, I recently heard from a fan who saw Petra, with PID opening, at Cincinnati Bible College in the early 1990s. Did anyone else happen to catch that show and know which year it was? Our best guess would be Oct 1992, but, as I say, that is just a guess. Any info you might have would be greatly ...

Re: Thogmartin Oldies?

[ORIGINAL MESSAGE] I went to a Petra concert in the mid-80s and they had Loyd Thogmartin open for them. Loyd Thogmartin had just put out an album called "Simple Directions". The concert would have been at the Virginia Beach Dome (which has since been torn down) in Virginia Beach, VA, about 1983. [EN...

Re: 1982 - Petra Live in Atlanta

[/quote] I recall that we played at a very large suburban Atlanta church where either Myron LeFevre was involved, or he played the same show. Might have been Mt. Paran Church of God. Wikipedia states that he had been a janitor there, but he'd probably been promoted before we ever played there. [/quo...

Michael,

Great info! Do you, by chance, happen to remember the venue for the Sep 14, 1989, Brisbane show?

Petra - Australia/New Zealand Tour (?) 1988

In the March 1988 issue, I found the following dates listed for Petra: Sydney (Mar 05) Newcastle (06) Brisbane (07) Hobart (09) Aubrey (10) Melbourne (...

Re: Petra Compete Tour list - help add missing dates.

*** I do have a bit of info on at least the April 7, 1990 Rosemont Horizon appearance. Not sure if anyone here remembers a televangelist who was popular for a time in the late 1980s and early 1990s named Larry Lea; who rose to prominence with a 1986 book on prayer titled "Could You Not Tarry One Hou...

Re: Favorite Petra concert

I believe that I have a concert poster from the ENC show. I'll try to get the date for you.

I just heard from the folks at Eastern Nazarene College today. The Feb 25, 1997, student newspaper ran an ad for the Mar 15 show there at ENC.

Thanks for the tip. Now we know!
