A Historic Stadium in the Middle of Nashua, New Hampshire

Holman Stadium is located in downtown Nashua, New Hampshire, just off Exit 6 on the Everett Turnpike.  The traffic around that area is insane on a good day, so I can't imagine how it must have been when these artists came to town.

We searched setlists for Holman Stadium, and you would not believe all the artists that played there.

There were three artists, however, that made my jaw drop.

These 3 Iconic Artists Played in Nashua, New Hampshire

Whitney Houston

Tina Turner

Bob Dylan

At the time, I'm not sure where these artists were in their careers, but I can guess that Whitney was extremely young and just coming up in the business.  Tina was probably still trying to make a foothold with her solo career, and Bob Dylan, well, man, I don't know what convinced him to play Nashua's Holman Stadium.

No offense to the place, but I can't remember a day that I didn't know his name.

I have gone to a few of these shows at Holman, and from what I can remember, I had an AMAZING time.  Nashua is my hometown, so it was thrilling before I even walked into the place.

I did, however, miss the Allman Brothers when they played at Holman, not once, but twice.
