Cub sez:
We'll I lived and worked Atlanta for 15 yrs. and in 1991, I had installed a small whole-house audio system for the General Manager of the OMNi Arena , downtown Atlanta. Well Bob returned the favor and when spring tour '92 arrived I used my marker.
We had use of his limousine all 3 shows, executive-box (with restroom n beer) for 1 show and floor seats for the other 2 shows.

What a treat for my pals who drove down from Phila. with some "Elvis" Mummers Parade costumes. and a Pope too. Jim Shed-mother wore the Pope hat.
I will find and post those pics soon.

June 20, 1974 the OMNi hosted the 'Wall of Sound"
Phil and Bobby were playing on the stage, in-front of the House PA.

Come'On Atlanta Family.........
I'm waiting for you to.......
Please add your pics n stories.

There are a few venues besides the Omni that have fallen to the wrecking ball before 1988.
That's when I first visited Atlanta to kick-start a tour.
We stayed at the downtown Holiday Inn and spent every day in Little Five Points having a mighty swell time.
