Jai-Alai frontons make natural concert venues

I didn't go to this show, but I've been to the venue. I used to travel to Florida a lot when I was younger and one time I visited Miami Jai-alai with my parents. I noticed that the fronton is basically a large auditorium with a huge stage, caged in at the front. My first impression of the place was that any band could take it over when the Jai-alai players were off. The auditorium was a perfect venue for a concert.

I know that Jimi Hendrix was scheduled to play here in July 1970 but I am not sure that the gig actually took place. Iron Butterfly also was booked a few months later. I am not surprised to learn that the Dead set up shop here for some shows in '74.

I wonder how many recent concerts were booked at frontons. They are definitely good venues.
