Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) | Saratoga Springs, NY | May 30-31, 2014





Dave Matthews Band

Saratoga Performing Arts Center
Saratoga Springs, NY



Friday, May 30, 2014
Sunday, May 31, 2014


Venue Information:
Spoiler:
[Only registered users can see links.]
Address:
108 Avenue of the Pines
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

Venue Type: Outdoor Amphitheater
Seating Capacity: 25100

Description: In early February 1961, Albany newspaperman Duane La Fleche noted a wire service report about a group hoping to entice New York Philharmonic to make Stowe, Vermont its summer residence. La Fleche proposed that the group stay in New York and perform in Saratoga Springs. Local civic, cultural, and legislative leaders, who had previously considered a Saratoga Arts Center an interesting possibility, began to design the facility. Within a week, they held their first meeting; within a month they were focusing on Saratoga Spa State Park as the site, had won the support of State Conservation Commissioner Harold Wilm, and begun discussions with both the Philharmonic and New York City Ballet. By summer 1963, generous contributions from Rockefeller Brothers Fund and New York State supplemented community support to create Saratoga Performing Arts Center. In June 1964, Governor Rockefeller mounted a bulldozer to break the first yard of ground. More than 410 workdays followed: 300 workers clocked 136,000 hours to complete the 5,100-seat, 10-story amphitheatre (original layout of the venue did not include a festival lawn). On July 9, 1966, NYCB conductor Robert Irving raised his baton, and Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream enchanted the opening night audience.

I'll be at N1. Originally had N2 but got 10 tickets to USA v. Turkey soccer game and doing N2 would be pushing it. Seeing some friends I haven't seen in a while but luckily I was able to trade for N1. Really really looking forward to it

My first year going to SPAC: Awesome.

My friend who put in our WH request only got Lawns: Not-Awesome.

Still, looking forward to the weekend.

I was in that same situation last year. SPAC N2 2013 was my 40th show. Then PNC was my 41st show, in which they played #41 at as well.
