Oakland Auditorium / Henry J. Kaiser Auditorium / Kaiser Convention Center Discography

This is a discography of albums recorded at the venue that was originally called the Oakland Civic Auditorium.

The venue, at 10 Tenth Street in Oakland, was opened in 1914. The building was refurbished in the early 1980's and reopened in 1984 as the Henry J. Kaiser Auditorium. It is currently called the Kaiser Convention Center. Throughout it's history the building has often been informally referred to as the Oakland Auditorium. The building has been used throughout it's lifetime for a wide range of sporting, musical and political events.

The Grateful Dead played over 20 shows at the auditorium mostly at the end of the 1970's and start of the 1980's.
