With the mullet overload, sunglasses and cropped shirts...i'm going to guess the year at 1984. I also have to take into account the one guy with a broken arm, and let's not overlook the wristband displayed by our guy with his arms crossed in the middle of the photo.

These guys partied hard. They liked fast cars and faster women. That much is obvious.

But what concert?
At 1984, the likely candidates are KISS, Aerosmith, OZZY and Van Halen. Iron Maiden and Motorhead were also touring that year, but these guys look a little too clean cut for that crowd. They WANTED to be as tough as Maiden and Motorhead fans, but they probably weren't ready for that music just yet. For that same reason, I'm eliminating KISS, Ozzy and Aerosmith. These guys look more party than rock. Nobody in this group had a leather wallet chained to their jeans - this pic screams velcro. While Aerosmith eventually entered that arena, they were still considered down-n-dirty, no frills rock in 1984.

So...Van Halen.

But where? Judging by the trees in the picture, I'm going to place them in the Midwest. And given the clothing - and again the trees - this is definitely summer.

There's a few options, but I'm going with...

How in the world did you miss the Vince Neil headband on the guy in the back?

Def Leppard
I considered them and it's not a bad guess, but Def Leppard wasn't touring the Midwest in 1984. And that would have been the Pyromania tour anyway. These guys aren't Pyromania fans - they are all Hysteria. And Hysteria wasn't released until 1987.

Too early of a pic for Poison.
Same for Slaughter. They were a 90s band.

Only chicks liked Winger, and nobody with a broken arm ever went to an REO Speedwagon concert.

Side Note: The chick on Slaughter's 1st album might take the cake for hottest woman on an album cover.
