  • Originally located elsewhere from 1985 - 1988 in a smaller building that housed 10,333 as a temporary
    facility for NBA baskbetall. A new building (the current one) was completed in 1988 and the original
    building (now referred to as Arco I) was converted to an office building. The original building still has
    the original parking lot markers from when it was an arena.
  • Metallica's first show here was one of the first events at the venue, and I believe the first concert there.
