Saratoga Performing Arts Center has seen it's share of legendary performances over the decades. Soon we will be able to return to SPAC for live music, summer nights and memorable concerts. Dead and Company just announced an August 27th show in Saratoga and Rod Stewart will be there with Cheap Trick on July 31st.

Some of my all time favorite memories were created at concerts in the 1980's. Remember "sleeping out" for tickets and trying to get good seats? The day of the show we would load the cooler with Buds, jump into my friends badass '69 Camaro (black with 2 gold racing stripes) and head to the concert wearing jean jackets and our favorite band shirts. Let's take a look back at SPAC in the 1980's.
