|ROCK SUPER BOWL III
TANGERINE BOWL - ORLANDO - FLORIDA
SEPTEMBER 4, 1977
|Rain falls on Rock Super Bowl 3 but the fans were still able to Come Alive ! The cigarette lighters of thousands were fired up for headliner Peter
Frampton. Frampton's Comes Alive album sold over 16 million copies and made Frampton a household name and a Hall of Fame super star.
After Frampton's Comes Alive made album of the year and broke sales records around the world,
every Rock band released a live album but none could match Frampton's "Comes Alive" album success.
Supporting act Kansas had just released its fourth album "Leftoverture" in October 1976 that was by far their best selling album with the hit
"Carry On Wayward Son". Robby Steinhardt was one of the founding members of the band who played violin and sang lead vocals and he also
lived in Tampa, Florida for many years.
Also supporting the festival The J.Geils Band were rocking the event with lead vocalist Peter Wolf and guitarist J. Geils.
Rick Derringer opened the festival with his mega hit "Rock n Roll Hoochie Koo"
