Hello. I remember going to a Petra concert in 1986 while I was at OCS in Newport, RI. The concert would have been held btwn the months of March and August. It was at a small Christian college in either Mass or CT. I remember they had to end the concert early in the performance due to darkness (I think). It was held outdoors. Anyone remember this concert? I've been to three other Petra concerts, but this was my first one.

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 dates:

All dates in 1982
May 1 Paris, TN
May 3 Atlanta, GA
May 4-15 Florida tour
May 28 Salisbury, MD
June 17 Baton Rouge, LA
June 18 Houston, TX
June 19 Dallas, TX
Aug 3 Highland, IN
Aug 7 West Covina, CA
Aug 21 Enid, OK
Aug 23 Springfield, MO
Aug 26 Knoxville, TN (World's Fair)
Sept 3 Baton Rouge, LA
Sept 4 New Orleans, LA
Sept 9 Columbus, OH
Sept 11 Archbold, OH
Sept 18 Nashville, TN

Then they say: Now scheduling fall tours.
Followed by this list: Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Chicago area, Wisconsin, Minneapolis, Denver, Grand Junction, Northwest Canada, Ruckin, B.C., Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma

And I found a Back To The Street Australia tour flyer. All dates 1986:

Nov 28, Sydney, Entertainment Centre
Nov 29, Melbourne, Festival Hall
Nov 30, Perth, Entertainment Centre
Dec 1, Adelaide, Apollo Entertainment Centre
Dec 2, Hobart, Entertainment Centre
Dec 4, Brisbane, Festival Hall

And other date from the Best The System Australia tour (1986).
Feb 21, [Melbourne], Festival Hall
The ticket stub I have for this show is identical in layout to the Nov. 29 Melbourne ticket stub I have, so I assume the Feb 21 show took place in Melbourne.
