On this date – September 8 – in 1986, the hit 80s band Hooters played to a packed house at Martz Hall in Pottsville.
Thousands of locals were in attendance.
Hooters Concert at Martz Hall in Pottsville – September 8, 1986
It could be one of the last major entertainment events held at Pottsville’s famed arena. Back in 2004, Martz Hall did play host to a rally for the re-election campaign of George W. Bush. Vice President Dick Cheney also drew a capacity crowd for that event.
But it definitely wasn’t Hooters live in concert!
Most people know Hooters because of their hit song And We Danced. But they couldn’t play that song for the whole concert.
