Not sure what got me thinking about this, but my first memory of the Dome is going to a Ringling Bros circus when i was 3 or 4 yrs old in the late 1970s (I’m ancient).. then we went to a few Saints games w/Archie Manning at QB, as well as Tulane games.. Followed by having season tix in the 80s for a few years, as well as a couple of Sugar Bowls, car shows and something called the ‘Superdome Superfair’.. I also had a job working security at the Dome when i was in college, working concerts (Frank Sinatra. Fresh Prince, Public Enemy) and Saints games.. HOWEVER, there was a 10 yr period (1999-2009) where I didn’t set foot in the Dome, but then acquired season tix in 2010 and since then almost every Saints home game, plus a couple LSU National Title games (won one, lost one).. I say all this, to say that my conservative count is maybe 150 times(?) going to the Dome... What you got?

Haven’t missed a game since 07 so about 104 games. Probably add about 10 more because I did get tickets sporadically.

I couldn't even guess. Saints games, Tulane games, Sugar Bowls, New Orleans Bowls, New Orleans Night games, Winn Dixie Showdown, car shows, boat shows, Globetrotters, a UNO basketball game in the early 90s, a Dodgers-A's exhibition game. Probably more I can't think of...

All but two Saints home games since 2000. I do not count preseason though as I probably only go if it's week 1-3 at home in preseason. I always skip the 4th preseason game at home.

Globetrotters


How could i forget the Globetrotters! I saw them once at the Dome, but i feel like i also saw them once at the UNO Lakefront Arena Back when it was a brand new venue.

Also i forgot to mention that I did go to a few New Orleans Jazz games.. it was shortly before they moved to that hotbed of jazz music... Utah.

1 time, it was that game against the Broncos 4 years ago where they won on that blocked extra point where the guy clearly stepped out of bounds. I was in the nosebleeds and I could still see he was out.

Just remembered, and this may be just an hallucination- but i think i remember going to a New York Yankees baseball game, of all things, inside the Superdome in the 1970s when they had the pitcher ‘Louisiana Lightnin’ Ron Guidry...it’s possible i only imagined that.. But i think it really happened.


ETA: according to Wikipedia, there was a Twins - Astros game in the Dome in ‘76.. also, i was today years old when i found out that the Oakland A’s almost became the New Orleans A’s:



The first baseball game in the Superdome was an exhibition between the Minnesota Twins and the Houston Astros on April 6, 1976.[34]

Superdome officials pursued negotiations with Oakland Athletics officials during the 1978–79 baseball off-season about moving the Athletics to the Superdome. The Athletics were unable to break their lease at the Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum and remained in Oakland.
