Over the years, AB Tech has had the [ahem] pleasure of working with a number of major acts, although they weren't necessarily that big at the time. This list covers major shows produced in whole or part by Tech since its creation.
Please note this list is definitely not complete and probably not entirely accurate.
Thanks in part to Anne Witchner and many Tech alumni for their assistance in assembling this list.
