I never saw a show at that place -- Orlando sportatorium?? -- but I understand the acoustics were hideous. Just a giant tin shed.

For those of us in the AARP crowd: find some of your old concert stubs if you still got 'em and scan a few.

The kids will flip out!

Hideous!

But my first Dead show was there May 21, 1977 (Dick's Picks 29), and it was superb.

Your probably right tieyourshoes51, I cant really remember how the acoustics were in those day's, ..seems we used to bring our own acoustics by way of psychedelics.
Dancing on an upturned 55 gal drum drinking Jack to Lynyrd Skynyrd, acoustics didn't matter.

“Remember the Sportatrium” ... I saw so many shows there and barely remember most. I did stand on stage at an Elton John concert. I’ll never forget that one.
