Saturday Morning Flashback: 1991 [Playlist]

The very first Lollapalooza Festival hit Chicago (Tinley Park) on August 3rd, staying for just one crazy night and then moving on to the next venue. The unique tour barnstormed through 21 cities; Rolling Stone magazine called it “the most successful and provocative package tour of the summer concert season.”

Other Chicago debuts in ’91 included the new Comiskey Park, the Harold Washington Library, the Shedd Oceanarium, and the Bulls first-ever NBA championship. Unforgettable!

Coming up:
August 6 – 1978
August 13 – 1967
August 20 – 1996
