(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The last legendary act to play at the University of Northern Iowa UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls, IA was Pink Floyd 17 years ago. Fleetwood Mac is booked for July 14, and the first time in 22 years, ending the draught. "It's really an initiative of the university and the athletic department to bring in bigger concerts to improve the quality of life for Cedar Valley residents and a way to get the arena up and running," Heather Tousignant, director of operations for athletic facilities, told the Cedar Falls Courier. "The university plans to break ground on a new arena Homecoming weekend with a projected finish date of September 2006. The arena would hold some of the smaller shows now taking place in the Dome and free up more dates to bring in live music."
"Having big concerts is something we want to get back into," said Tousignant. "We have a great history in it and want to get back into it."
Chicago, the Grateful Dead, Ray Charles, The Who and the Rolling Stones have played the Dome over the years. –Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
