    I can think of at least one better way to destroy that place. Just invite Van Halen back.

    I like this part :

    "Musical acts ranging from Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra to Van Halen and the Grateful Dead performed there."

    Yeah, I saw many a show there, including that 5150 taping. Also met Guns N' Roses there and the Allman Brothers and that was cool. And my first concert ever was Yes in the round at NHC way back in 1975. Lots of good memories.
    Could this be magic?

    Where are the New Haven Nighthawks playing this year? Perhaps they can share rink space at the Big E with the Springfield Indians?

    I saw a 5150 show there in '86 (late August or early September?). I was a senior in high school -- the memories. I think Ed was having guitar trouble that night, so the LWAN footage was all from the second night at the Coliseum.
