    Bob Dylan played at the Hump in the late 90s.

    Only thing I remember is that people working the event were instructed not to look him in the eye...

    I saw the Black Crowes at the amphitheater around '91. When did the Allman's play it?

    Joan Jett - at malfunction junction amp

    Smithereens - McCarthy
    I will add that a couple years ago, I learned that one of my coworkers used to play with a group called 17th Floor that played Starkville fairly often. His group traveled the world and played background for Usher and several other pop/r&b groups. I didn't believe him at first but he had pics and videos of him hanging out and/or performing with Usher, Boys to Men, Prince, and some others.

    Saw Bob Dillon and nickleback. Chad Kroeger grabbed a couple bottle waters he had on stage and threw them to me and my buddy on the front row. Pretty fun concert. But that's the only 2 I remember in the hump.

    I remember them. Think I went to a couple sorority parties where they played. Fun band.

    Crowes was either Fall '91 or Spring '92. The Allmans opened for Blues Traveler in Spring '93 I think. Couple of friends and I stood right at the middle of the stage, front row and talked to Dickey Betts the whole show. We all got guitar picks at the end of the set.

    I saw Live and Counting Crows in Spring of 2000 there. It was funny, after Live went on some guys in front of me were with their girlfriends and the girls said they wanted to leave because Counting Crows was so depressing. One of the guys responded "Live is the depressing one. Lightning crashes and old mother dies... what can be more depressing than that."

    That was the only concert I ever saw at the Hump but I did see one where the drummer was out front and was also the singer (forgot who it was but they were popular at the time) at the Amphitheater.

    One hit wonder? He had already had like 10 number 1?s when he played in Starkville in 1992. I?m not a huge Garth fan but that was a fun concert. He was very entertaining. Busted out his new jersey Jackie gave him before the concert.

    Seriously? I?ve only heard the Low Places song. Didn?t know he had done much else. But I only listen to rock and Rap. I have no idea who anybody is in Country Music except Faith Hill
    Just out here kicking rocks

    I dislike most country - but I don't know how you were on campus at the same time I was and escaped hearing Garth everywhere you went. I had a neighbor who would come home from Classix and just blast that shit at 2:00 AM. It was shear torture.

    Was there for that. We didn't know who the long-haired brunette was, we just wanted her to hurry up and get off the stage.

    Very cool. I graduated in '93 but I don't remember the Allmans show. I saw them in '95 at the Jackson Zoo. Only time I got to see them. I didn't appreciate their greatness until later in life.

    The only one I remember attending at the Hump was Sheryl Crow with Eagle Eye Cherry. My first concert ever was the Black Crowes at the Amphitheater.

    Yeah I'm not real big Garth fan either, but the dude has sold 157 million albums, not bad lol.

    #1 artist in album sales since 1991, according to Nielsen.
