(Original show card)
In his own words, Metro owner Joe Shanahan tells his recollection of The Ramones sold out show on July 26, 1986:
The Ramones were touring a new album (Animal Boy) on this tour so they played the entire new record and the greatest hits. I can remember it was hot that night. Maybe the hottest show to ever happen at Metro aside from Iggy Pop. And this was before good ventilation so the walls and ceiling were sweating. Security was passing out fans to guests that night to try to keep them cool and then you look on stage and see the band in their leather jackets! Backstage, it turns out they’d been soaking their feet in ice to cool down.
