  • No venue has had more different songs played. If you see a Metallica show here, it will be special.
  • Known for it's chandeliers over the floor and for it's posters given away after most shows. A collection of almost every poster for decades lines the walls in most of the rooms of the building.
  • The venue was damaged and closed in 1989 after the Loma Preieta earthquake. After founder Bill Graham's death in 1991 in a helicopter crash, his friends carried out his wishes to restore and reopen The Fillmore, which they did in 1994.
  • "The greatest compliment I was ever given came at The Fillmore. It was Cream and the Butterfield Blues Band. I just happened to go into the rest room during a break. I was standing at the middle urinal when two guys came in after me, one on either side...right out of the blue, one said, 'I forgot. Who's playing here tonight?' Without batting an eyelash, the other guy said, 'I don't know, man. What's the difference? It's The Fillmore." -Bill Graham

Fillmore Entrance - 2003

"Majestic Ballroom" - 1912

Metallica poster given to fans May 22nd, 2003

"Fillmore West" - 1970

* The reason the venue has two names here is because in 1968 "The Fillmore" was relocated to a new location at Market & Van Ness and dubbed
"Fillmore West". At the same time, the original building was renamed "The Elite Club". In 1986, the original building was reopned as "The Fillmore".
The location of the old "Fillmore West" is now a Walgreens.
