This Week in History

March 23, 2004 Britney Spears brought her fifth concert tour, The Onyx Hotel Tour, to Philips Arena. Critics gave mixed reviews of the tour. It was described as a theatrical extravaganza, sexy, low on substance, and sloppy. However, for one lucky Philips Arena guest, this concert was unrivaled. Donna Topper was welcomed into Philips Arena as the ten millionth guest.

Philips Arena President Bob Williams awarded Topper a gift package featuring:
  • Two tickets to all Philips Arena ticketed events for one year
  • Philips 23-inch TFT LCD Flat TV
  • Philips digital key ring camera
  • Philips Arena Party Suite
  • A commemorative "Ten-Million" team jerseys from the Atlanta Thrashers and Atlanta Hawks
The gift package also included gifts from Philips Arena's and the team's sponsors:
  • Two round-trip Delta Air Lines tickets
  • $250 gift certificate from The Home Depot
  • Mountain bike courtesy of Anheuser-Busch
  • Motorola V300 T-Mobile phone and one year of free service
  • Coca-Cola Nostalgia Radios
  • $500 savings bond from Bank of America
