My List of Big-Name Concerts at RPI

Posted by John Dojka on February 19, 2010 in

My post regarding big name concerts has been one of the most popular posts on this blog. There are some great comments about concert memories and tips that have led me to more information.  I have referred to "my list" of RPI concerts and it's about time I shared that list!  I put it in a pdf file so the blog is not barraged with extraneous concert searches.  If you remember any of these concerts or have information about concerts not on the list, please leave a comment!

Our List of Big Name Concerts

[Please note: We started at 1960 and moved forward so concerts from the last ten years have not been added.]
