How far back can you remember Darien Lake concerts? Who was the first act to ever play at Darien Lake's Performing Arts Center?

Let's start off with a little history first. The location that is now used for the laser light show inside of the park back by the Boomerang roller coaster was the site of the Lakeside Amphitheater where concerts started as early as the 1980's.

The concerts were then moved to what you know now as the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, which is a totally separate entity.

Did you guess who was number one? The Allman Brothers have been to Darien Lake Performing Arts Center 15 times since its opening 23 seasons ago in 1993.
