The below 2 photos of Nikki Sixx playing with W.A.S.P. was take at the Raymond Theatre,

later renamed Perkins Palace where the Crue (among many great bands) played in the early 80ies.


If you wanna know more about the theatre and the "Friends Of The Raymond Theatre"

who are doing a great job (going on 17th year) at saving the theatre from

demolition, go to the Friends Of The Raymond Theatre web site.


The W.A.S.P., Ratt and Armored Saint concert took place on Friday, May 13, 1982

at  Perkins Palace (currently known as the Raymond Theatre) .

  The concert was produced by Gina Zamparelli (Zamparelli Productions).

Gina Zamparelli took over both management and concert promotion of Perkins Palace in 1982.

The first show she produced at the venue was W.A.SP. (with special guests Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue), Ratt, and Armored Saint.


Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P. wanted to help make the show the best it could be,

since it was their largest headlining show at the time.

Blackie Lawless asked Nikki Sixx to make a special appearence.

The show sold out in one hour, 2,000 people attended and the legacy of this concert has far outlived the show.

Motley Crue has also played Perkins Palace and held rehearsals at the theatre for the Shout of the Devil tour.
