Funny Photos of Ozzy Osbourne Before a Performance at the Poplar Creek Music Theater in Hoffman Estates, Chicago, 1986

Portraits of Ozzy Osbourne before a performance at the Poplar Creek Music Theater in Hoffman Estates, Chicago, Illinois, July 13, 1986. The photos were taken by Paul Natkin.

Poplar Creek Music Theater was a concert venue located in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The amphitheatre opened in 1980 and closed in 1994. It hosted a variety of popular musical acts during its 15-season existence. It consisted of a covered pavilion and grass seating area, and had a capacity of 25,202 people: 7,202 reserved seats and 18,000 lawn seats.

Attendance began to dwindle in the late 1980s, and Poplar Creek faced competition from the opening of the World Music Theater (now Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre) in Tinley Park in 1990. Sears acquired the property in 1989 and allowed Poplar Creek to remain in operation until 1994.
