Archive Diver: Monsters Of Rock with Metallica at The Orange Bowl in June, 1988

Texas might have "Remember the Alamo!" But Dade will always remember the Orange Bowl. Just think, this week in 1988, the Monsters Of Rock tour put NW 3rd street on smash. Wouldn't it be cool if Metallica rocked Little Havana nowadays? Yes, yes it would.

This week in 1988 also brought blues legend Dr. John to the Tropics International on South Beach, They Might Be Giants to Respectable Street Cafe in West Palm, and Camper Van Beethoven to Club Nu on 22nd Street, Miami Beach. After the jump, check out the fliers for those shows.
