Since the doors opened in 1969 The Milestone has hosted the best damn bands to ever take the stage in Charlotte, NC. A heartfelt thank you to all the veterans and previous owners who have helped us compile this list.
Please add to our list, e-mail Neal with the approximate date and name of the bands you saw, gimmie a good list and I may sport you a few beers at the bar.
There are some really great stories about the 'stone floating around out there, any of you old coons who have the time to type out a description of the drunken mayhem you've witnessed in years past - PLEASE SEND US STORIES! We'll add to this history page with chronological listings of stories, please contribute to documenting the history of Charlotte's oldest living rock dealer. We'll love you forever, or at least till the keg runs dry.
