It's me! I'm in the news!
As a 14 ur old, I both lived in the area and attended the show. I remember the preceding hysteria. A rumor was going around that a local stake president had prophesied someone would die at the concert which, as an otherwise devout Mormon, I half believed might actually happen.
The concert was a lot of fun and my most distinct memory is of the most pits which kept forming around me. As a weak, shy 14yr old, I found this terrifying and would immediately run out of the circle, only to be pushed back in by the wall of guys who, for whatever reason, didn't want anyone to leave the circle (or mistook my frantic efforts to flea as 'moshing' against them and that was their attempt to 'mosh' back)
