Underworld on May 1 of 1999, the last date of the "Beaucoup Fish" Tour, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Los Angeles.
Some friends and I made the trip from Mexico, had a blast, then stayed a couple of days cruising around L.A. before heading back home.
The vibe at the concert was incredible. Twenty thousand people jumping in unison made the floor pulsate like an earthquake was happening. And another thing, Underworld was a cross-cultural hit, so that the concert had it all - asians, blacks, whites and hispanics in large amounts. Talk about one nation under one groove, a powerful positive energy had us all electrified, everybody smiling at each other with bright, shining eyes.
And then, at the end of the concert, on a huge screen behind the stage, a black-on-white silhouette of the Millennium Falcon zooming along at high speed. Get it? "The Phantom Menace" was to come out three weeks later.
I was psyched for a full week afterwards.
