I'm trying to recall the shows and concerts Etc that I saw in El Dorado or came to El Dorado when i was a kid and for that matter through our history. The days before Musicfest when the Auditorium held most of the shows. Also I'm interested in the artist that would have come through the old St. Louis part of town as I've heard many great bluesmen did back in the Day
Who saw who where and when ??
I remember Hank Williams Jr in the auditorium and maybe Johnny Paycheck,
Didn't Conway Twitty come once ?
I saw Ken Curtis ( Festus from Gun Smoke) at Mellor Park Mall. Maybe it was the grand Opening?? And Denver Pyle (Uncle Jesse Duke) once here somewhere.

Conway was here. Ronnie McDowell was the opening singer. He had that song The King is Gone about Elvis. It was about 1980.
