Now this is kind of a trip to watch.
For the hell of it, I typed in Cedar Rapids into YouTube to see what I could find…and man…did I find a treasure trove of all sorts of Cedar Rapids stuff! Concert footage, music videos, news stories, flood stories, etc….all over the place.
But one that caught my eye had to be a video from 1998, when the US Cellular Center was known as the Five Season Center…and a band that took over the metal world named Pantera visited and from the looks of the video, just DOMINATED the place….see what I did there?
Listeners have told me many stories of when Pantera was in Cedar Rapids, and thanks to some ballsy concert goer sneaking in a camcorder and filming a bootleg video? You get to relive that epic concert experience. I never got to see Pantera in all their glory, but this video probably suffices.
