Default Great Outdoor Stadium Events/Occasions

On the eve of night's spectacular Marquee event at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, I thought it might be interesting to recall some of the great outdoor events (British and around the world) that stand out for you:

Bruno v McCall

I remember the entrance to this one was class - the laser show and big ben chimes etc. I re-watched this short clip and remembered Benn going absolutely nuts at ringside. Brilliant night, always had an oul soft spot for Bruno.

McGuigan v Pedrosa - Lofus Road.

Can't believe the amount of bodies squeezed into that ground that night. Unforgettable night.
