Celebrating 50 Years of Concerts at the WVU Coliseum

360º Sight and Sound
with Special Guest Preview
|SHOW DATE: Thursday, February 10, 1983 • 8pm|
Pat Benatar's 1983 concert at the Coliseum was hugely popular with both students
and the Morgantown community – so much so that the negative review
that appeared in The Daily Athenaeum was met with a barrage of letters
to the editor countering the reviewer's opinion.
Benatar, one of the most popular female vocalists of the '80s, had just released her fourth studio album, "Get Nervous," and 9,505 fans packed the arena to hear her hit powerful vocals singles "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," "Heartbreaker" and "Shadows of the Night."
WVU Students Blair Kinder and David Riggleman braved cold temperatures to have their
tickets validated. Riggleman stood in line for 11 hours to purchase his ticket.
