Just curious - what concerts did you attend at the Omni before it was demolished in the late 90s?

As a kid I remember going to see the Brady Bunch in concert! But clearly have better memories of Bruce Springsteen.

Had free tix to see Michael Jackson in '88. David Bowie in '90. U2 in '92. R.E.M. in '95 (or '96?). I was at club shows most of the time during these years. Cheaper and more fun.

The most memorable concert there for me was the Jacksons Victory Tour in 1984.

Wow...memories galore.

I attended numerous concerts in the 70s, all on school nights. We'd come home REEKING of pot as it was smoked out in the open.

Boston, Styx, Chicago, Elton John, Beach Boys, Elvis Presley twice, Michael Jackson, Neil Diamond...and many more.
