June 24, 1969 - Latham Entertainment Venue

The Latham Entertainment Venue played host to some major major acts through the years.
It came to be known as the Colonie Coliseum, and later The Starlight.
But on this day in 1969, most of us just called it the tent, and Carman Holliman was on hand for the opening night.
The starlight shut down in 1998. It was torn down last year to make room for new development.
