Quote:

Atlanta Municipal Auditorium at the intersection of Courtland Street and Gilmer Street, adjacent to Hurt Park. Throughout the 1950's this was the site of weekly wrestling matches held each Friday night. By the late 1960's, the auditorium had become a reliable venue for catching touring rock acts: The Who, Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, Little Feat, and Black Sabbath, among many others, all played shows here.

This building now houses Georgia State University's Alumni Hall.

Fox Theatre, Atlanta

Quote:

Fox Facts

To build The Fox Theatre today would cost more than $300 million.

The discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922 launched a worldwide fascination with Egyptian decor. The results can be seen inter-woven with the Moorish decor of The Fox.

The theatre's enormous Bedouin canopy overhang is really a work of plaster and steel rods, and not only serves as ornamentation, but also as an acoustical funnel to project sound to the rear of the house.

The Fox Theatre can seat up to 4,678 patrons.
The beguiling sky is in reality a vaulted ceiling, painted *SPAM* blue. The twinkling stars are 11-watt bulbs fixed above four-inch crystals. The drifting clouds are produced by a special projector.

The Fox Theatre ballrooms have hosted receptions and special events for visiting ambassadors, noted U.S. politicians and internationally acclaimed people, including Prince Charles himself.

An estimated 750,000 people visit the Fox Theatre every year.

Until 1995, coal was used to heat the steam boilers in the case of emergencies. The Fox Theatre spends approximately over $40,000 a month on power. The Fox still houses the original steam boilers today.

The Fox Theatre was one of the earliest air conditioned buildings in the country, even preceding the White House.

The Fox Theatre serves more than four and a half tons of popcorn each year.

So what is it Fritz, I'm curious as to what word that was that ended up on their spam list?

I'm appreciating the fact that you're reading those words very attentive, Poly. But I've no clue what it means since it's a quote, I didn't check it. So pleaze don't hold it against me.

But now you mentioned it, I suppose spam blue sounds like a rest of cheese lying in a corner of your fridge for several month.

It's okay I did a search and found that quote, the colour is *SPAM* blue. Maybe somewhere in that name is a drug brand name or something.
    :roll: :wink:

Aw, shucks, is that all? I was expecting something along the lines of "frustrated monkey-balls blue", or the like. :(

I have to admit I was underwhelmed when I discovered it.

This was my 5th FZ concert.

Halle 2 is on the right side behind the trees. The big one is Germany's second largest hall so far I know. Pink Floyd performed The Wall in 1980 in Halle 1.

Quote:

Opened in 1938 and originally seating 700, the Art Moderne Vogue Theatre in Indianapolis' now-trendy Broad Ripple neighborhood hasn't been a movie house since the 70s, but is still packing them in in its current role, as one of the city's most popular nightclubs, the Vogue.

The exterior still retains its old-fashioned movie house appearance, complete with a large neon marquee, but inside, it has been almost entirely made over.

The club also hosts live performances by big-name artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tori Amos, and Todd Rundgren, as well as local bands. Most nights, however, you'll most likely be hearing a DJ spinning everything from house to techno to retro disco to world music on the very packed dance floor.
