Although I had been to Concerts before (Boston, Cheap Trick, etc.) it was my first Heavy Metal Concert. We sat in the second balcony and during the show I saw Bats flying around. I thought it was a cool special effect and I wondered how they did it. Later, I found out that they were real Bats. The Morris had over time fallen into such a state of disrepair that Bats were living in it.
After a while the Morris stopped having Rock Concerts due to the damage the loud Music was having on the structure. The sound was shaking the plaster off the walls. Fortunately years later they restored the Morris and now it’s one of the jewels of South Bend. – Mike Walbert
