It took not one, but two demolition explosions to tear down the mighty Pontiac Silverdome in December 2017. Football fans remember the Silverdome as the home of the Detroit Lions from 1975 through 2002 and the stadium of Super Bowl XVI. The Silverdome also welcomed wrestling fans to watch WWE superstar Hulk Hogan defend his heavyweight title against André the Giant during WrestleMania III. Led Zeppelin played a historic gig at the Silverdome during their fabled 1977 North American Tour to a crowd of 76,229 and set the attendance record for a single act show at the time. The Pontiac Silverdome is now gone, but its memory will continue on.
