From The Vault: Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash & Carlene Carter   Leave a comment

We booked Johnny Cash, who was one of the biggest stars that played Six Flags Magic Mountain in the ’80s.

We had no idea he would be joined by June Carter Cash & Carlene Carter. They all did 2 shows at the Showcase Theatre, October 23, 1982.

He called June to the stage, and they sang together. Then, he said the words: “Dance for us, June.” The crowd went wild … and all I could think of was how dirty my stage floor must be when she took off her shoes & started to dance.

From The Vault: Johnny Cash (1982)   2 comments

There was a brief period at Six Flags Magic Mountain when I was transitioning to the marketing department where I would be booking name entertainment … but was still responsible for running the main concert venue. I was running the venue for the acts booked by my future boss.

One of the most memorable nights was when we hosted the Man in Black.

Since I was not needed to call lighting cues for the concert (which I did for most of the teen acts … but not for the big stars!), I was free to take pictures once the show got up and running. I had the run of the place, of course, so I could take pictures from the audience or from backstage.
