I don't know about you, but I went to a lot of concerts at the Hannibal Riverfront Amphitheater back in the day. That feeling of nostalgia led me on a quest to see if I could document all of the major shows that happened in Hannibal during that era. This is the result of that quest.

I found a motherlode of information on the Setlist.fm website. It chronologically lists all of the shows major and minor that happened at the Hannibal Riverfront Amphitheater dating back to June of 1985. Here's a best of from that list:

May 31, 1985 - Sam & Dave

June 7, 1985 - The Ozark Mountain Daredevils

June 22, 1985 - Air Supply

July 6, 1985 - Doc Severinsen

That's not absolutely every artist that played the Hannibal Riverfront Amphitheater in the 1980's and early 1990's, but it's close. If this makes you nostalgic about the good ole days, check out the full Setlist.fm list. It was quite an era for live concerts in the tri-states that will likely never be matched again.
