Men at Work Conducted Business at Hara Arena in 1983

In 1983, the Australian rock band Men at Work performed a concert at Dayton, Ohio’s Hara Arena. At that time, the band was enjoying success with their hit songs “Who Can It Be Now?” and “Down Under”, both of which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The band was a big deal among Gen Xers, with their music videos being frequently played on MTV.
