thw onw time eric burdon and war played in seattle 9actually tacoma) it was held at cheney stadium (no relation) in tacoma. it was an open air baseball stadium. when eric (in a drunken high) called for all the folks watching from "cheapskate hill" behind the stadium to come on down and enjoy the show, they all took him at his word and crashed the gates at the stadium. a full blown riot ensued.
eric ended up with a bench warrant out for arrest for inciting a riot and it was over 20 years before hw could re-enter washington state.
