Nashville’s first modern auditorium, Municipal Auditorium, replaced the African-American Bijou Theater, which was torn down in the 1950s as part of Nashville’s urban renewal. The auditorium seats over 9,000 and has hosted sporting events including basketball, gymnastics, ice hockey, rodeos, and wrestling, as well as concerts (including Herman’s Hermits, Elvis, the Rolling Stones, KISS, and Widespread Panic), religious programming, trade shows, childrens’ shows, and circuses. Designed by Marr and Holman, the concrete-domed auditorium opened in 1962.
