Hollywood Sportatorium...Remember when...

Welcome graphic

Favorite Band or Musician: Oh...way too many of them out there!

Finally...a place where we can all share pictures and memories of the now infamous Hollywood Sportatorium!   Hi, this is Suzzy (Big Sue to some of your from way back when) and I used to run security at the Hollywood Sportatorium. I have purchased this web domain and plan on keeping it for many, many decades.  What better way to pay homage to one of the most notorious concert venues in the entire North American continent than to have the fans themselves do the honors!

I welcome any and all comments, stories, pictures, copies of ticket stubs or ANYTHING else at all that you think should be posted onto this site.  Each posting will receive credit from the person submitting the "item", so if someone else was involved in the picture taking or it was their camera, your film etc…. make sure to give them credit too!
