USA Today stated:
“Now a state-run historic site, which was restored and opened in 1964, Waterloo in the 1980s became a major New Jersey concert site, with smaller concerts presented in an open tent venue and larger shows in the large open field. Over the years, the field hosted top acts such as the Allman Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Steve Winwood, and hosted the inaugural Lollapalooza Festival. The acts appearing in the more-intimate tent venue were no slouches either, ranging from Lyle Lovett and Rickie Lee Jones to Edgar Winter, Alvin Lee and the Everly Brothers.”
