Jay Leno, then exclusive guest-host of "The Tonight Show" and heir-apparent to late-night legend Johnny Carson, performed at the WVU Coliseum in September 1990 in a special Parents Day concert. Tickets were a steal at only $15. 

The show was met with rave reviews. A review of the show published in the Fairmont "Times West Virginian" called Jay the "everyman of comedy."
