It was in January of 1973 that the arena now affectionately known as The AMP officially opened its doors with a Grand Opening as The Providence Civic Center.

This morning on The Rhode Show, Will Gilbert, Audrey McClelland, and Brendan Kirby all shared fond memories of the arena; from The Beach Boys to the 1994 WWE Royal Rumble and more! They also enjoyed some celebratory cake, and Brendan made a plea to get his favorite band back at the venue one more time.
