Can You Believe All Of These Legends Have Played At The Ector County Coliseum? Check Out The List!
The Ector County Coliseum in Odessa has seen some really big acts come through its doors over the years and with The Beach Boys playing there tonight I think we should look back and see some of the icon artists that have played there. Did you know Elvis actually played there not too long before he passed away? Artists of all genres of music graced the stage everyone from Elvis to Johnny Cash and Poison to George Strait, have all made stops in Odessa, Texas. I can remember as a kid going to see George Strait and I remember the traffic down 42nd being at a standstill because of all the cars trying to get in the coliseum.
Before the internet, people used to have to stand in line to buy tickets for upcoming concerts and people would come out just to be in line. I remember when Garth Brooks played the Coliseum, people camped out for days in hopes of getting tickets. You could camp out and stand in line and you weren't guaranteed to get a ticket.
The first concert my mom let me go to with my friends without adult supervision was Clay Walker and Kenny Chesney. Believe or not at the time Kenny Chesney was opening for Clay Walker back in 1998.
