Former Location –
A lot of performers played here over the years as it was the primary Tampa venue for touring artists through the 1960’s and 1970’s. Duane Allman made one of only two public performances with Derek and the Dominos here on December 1, 1970. The other live performance with Duane was at the Onondaga County War Memorial in Syracuse, New York, the following night.

Other performers include Bob Dylan, David Bowie, The Who, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, KISS, Grateful Dead, The Wailers, Ozzy Osbourne and Cat Stevens.

Elvis Presley played here in 1977, just months before his death.

In 1982 U2 opened here for the J. Geils Band on their first American tour.
