    Eastown Theater

    The vast array of bands that played this venue, and graced this very stage is astonishing. These are some of the more significant in no particular order.

    Derek and the Dominos, Fleetwood Mac, The Allman Brothers (w/ Duane) Van Morrison, T Rex, Traffic, The J Geils Band, Alice Cooper, Jethro Tull, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Sly and the Family Stone, The Grateful Dead, Joe Cocker, The MC5, Mountain, Jefferson Airplane, Rory Gallagher, The Kinks, John Lee Hooker, The Bob Seger System, Black Sabbath, Procol Harum, Humble Pie, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Chuck Berry, Mott the Hoople, Rod Stewart and the Faces, King Crimson, BB King, Paul Butterfield, The Stooges, Howlin’ Wolf, James Brown, Yes, The Doors, Joe Walsh, Muddy Waters, Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, Bob Marley and the Wailers

    This is a tragic and undignified ending for such an important piece of rock music history. For those who may not know, about a year ago, the adjoining apartment building was vacated and methodically stripped by scrappers. Recently a devastating fire has left the building in ruins. Although the theater was not damaged, it will almost certainly be razed along with the apartments.

    T Rex!!!

      "This is a tragic and undignified ending for such an important piece of rock music history." Truer words were never spoken. Great piece of work Rob, and your words just add to the drama.

      Rock on!

      I especially like the inclusion of the curtain. So much history here...

      Love the behind the scenes look of this image with that fire escape type staircase on the far wall. I am sure it leads you up to the top of the stage for whatever mechanics and whatnot were taken care of there.
