The performing arts center of the Scope complex, Chrysler Hall is handsomely appointed for distinctive theater and concert events. Home to the Virginia Symphony and the Norfolk Forum, Chrysler Hall also hosts the popular Broadway at Chrysler Hall.

Seating 2,500 in the orchestra, dress circle, and balcony, Chrysler Hall is well suited to a multitude of events. Its main lobby and two-level grand hall are perfectly suited to host weddings, receptions, and other formal events, and can easily accommodate any number of set-ups.

Alumni Arena, Buffalo

Quote:
Alumni Arena is the world-class home for many of UB's thrilling Division I athletic events. The building was constructed in two phases beginning in 1982. The 1985 addition included a gymnastics area, activity rooms, locker rooms, and racket ball courts. Alumni Arena also includes a 6,100-seat gym for basketball, wrestling or volleyball—also the site of commencement and lectures—and a 50-meter 1.2-million-gallon Olympic-size pool.

Louisville Palace, Louisville
11-20-1984

Quote:
For years the heart of Louisville's downtown commercial district was Fourth Street. Shopping and dining were wonderful, and there wasn't a better way to end the day than taking in a movie at one of the gorgeous theatres--the Rialto, the Kentucky, the Ohio, the Mary Anderson or any of the other movie houses. The most beautiful of these theatres, and only one of two that survived urban renewal, is The Louisville Palace (formerly the United Artists Theatre). Its a treasure to generations of Louisvillians.

The Louisville Palace is located on the east side of Fourth Street between Broadway and Chestnut. This location is convenient to the city's finest hotels and restaurants. Designed by noted architect John Eberson, the theatre opened at 10:15 a.m. Saturday, September 1, 1928 at a purported cost of over two million dollars--a whole lot of money in those days. Although its facade is dynamic in appearance, it doesn't provide a clue as to the immensity and spectacular design of the interior of the theatre. Upon entering the lobby and grand foyer, the Spanish Baroque motif begins its development. Cobalt blue, bursts of red and gold indirectly light all of the niches, coves and entrances. Above the Spanish treasures there is a curved, vaulted ceiling with 139 carvings of the eternal greats. In a central portion one finds plaster busts of Socrates, Beethoven, Dante and even John Eberson himself! In any direction there is something magnificent to please the eye and spark the imagination.

"Enter and view with astonishment the magnificence that the hand of man has wrought. The more you look, the more you will see."---The Courier Journal September 1, 1928

Kiel Auditorium, St. Louis
11-24-1984

Quote:
The Henry W. Kiel Municipal Auditorium (aka Kiel Auditorium), the site of AA’s Second International Convention in 1955, was a St. Louis landmark for its 58 years of existence at 15 th and Market Streets. It was, as a 1934 mayoral proclamation stated, “designed to enrich the peoples’ lives and…add to the attractiveness and popularity of our City as it will bring to us great conventions and cultural activities.â€￾ Originally known as the Municipal Auditorium, it was officially named in honor of former St. Louis mayor Henry W. Kiel on March 26, 1943. Kiel, mayor from 1913-1925, was a strong supporter of the arts, had encouraged the idea of a municipal auditorium and helped that concept become a reality.
Opening on April 14, 1934, the original building was designed by St. Louis architects Louis LaBeaume and Eugene S. Klein in a modified classic design with seats for 11,500 in the convention hall and 3,500 in the Opera House.
During its life the Kiel had hosted many events including conventions, public meetings, expositions, sports events, musical performances, high school graduations and even a 1948 presidential campaign speech by Harry S. Truman. In addition to serving as the primary venue for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, the St. Louis Philharmonic Orchestra, Dance St. Louis and St. Louis’ annual Veiled Prophet Ball, it served as the home court of the St. Louis Hawks professional basketball team and the Saint Louis University Billikens basketball team.

Some of the venues Zappa played in Sweden. I saw FZ at Hovet in 1988. I´m not 100% sure of all the dates. I´m pretty sure i´ve heard that he played Konserthuset in 1972 but according to http://home.swipnet.se/fzshows/ he did not.

Konserthuset, Stockholm 30-Sep 1967, 1-Oct 1968, 24-Feb 1976, 15-Jan 1977, 19-Feb 1978

Scandinavium, Gothenburg 21-Jan 1977, 18-Feb 1978, 6-Mar 1979, 2-Jun 1980, 10-May 1982:

That's what I remembered from the 79 tour. FZ sat on a chair, had a look at the audience, smoked, and played the guitar sometimes.

Actually Mr. Fritz - the 12/04/1981 show was cancelled. They did play the Omaha Music Hall (which is part of the Auditorium but not the same thing) on 04-12-1980.

I like these pics, too. They are from Zürich. I saw FZ in Cologne same year. Same stool, same behaviour and some great solos. My first FZ concert - sigh.
