The Save Mart Center hosted some big concerts, and was for a time, one of the busiest arena's in the country. Located on the Fresno State Campus a special organization called the California State University Association was set up as the owner and operator. The association claimed the predominant use of the Center was for university athletic events, and not subject to taxes. But, at the same time, it brought in millions of dollars as an entertainment venue.
