Description

A newspaper clipping about a concert featuring Nazareth with Mahogany Rush and Sammy Hagar (b. 1947) at the Orlando-Seminole Jai Alai Fronton in Fern Park, Florida. The concert took place on February 24, 1978, and was presented by Albert Promotions and FM 107. The ticket price was $6.50. This clipping contains a photograph of the members of Nazareth, from left to right, bottom to top: Darrell Sweet (1947-1999), Manny Charlton (b. 1941), Dan McCafferty (b. 1946), and Pete Agnew (b. 1946).

Orlando-Seminole Jai Alai Fronton was built in 1962 and hosted concerts, graduations and events in addition to jai-alai matches, which remained popular through the mid-1980s, when its popularity began to decline. The building was rebranded Orlando Live Events (OLE) in 2014. It is located at 6405 South U.S. Route 17-92 (U.S. 17-92) in Fern Park.
