From wiki:
Helsinki Ice Hall (Helsingin Jäähalli) is an indoor arena located in Helsinki, Finland. It is the home arena for HIFK of the SM-liiga. It is sometimes called "Petoluola", Finnish for "The beast's cave", referring to the logo of HIFK: a red panther. It is capable of holding 8,120 people.

Helsinki Ice Hall used to be the main arena for all important ice sports events, as well as indoor arena concerts, but after the construction of Turkuhalli and Hartwall Areena, many events take place in the newer arenas. Helsinki Ice Hall still remains an active arena for concerts, conferences, expos and sports events.

Hello, This is one of my favorite threads.
Thanks Fritz!
I saw 2 shows at the Terrace Ballroom in Salt Lake City Utah.
3-10-74
10-3-80
I searched for photos on wiki I found some but I cant figure how to upload them or the info about the Terrace. I saw quite a few shows there.
Fritz, Could you see if you can upload them. This venue was built in the 30s and is supposed to have been the biggest ballroom in the world at the time. Its a parking lot now near the Salt Palace you posted pics of earlier in this thread.

from wiki:

The Terrace Ballroom was a ballroom located on 464 South Main Street in Salt Lake City, Utah. During the 1930s, when it was called "Coconut Grove", there was no larger ballroom in the United States. Its name was originally changed in the 1940s to "Rainbow Rendezvous" before it settled in the 1950s to "Terrace Ballroom".[1]

During the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s the venue hosted performances by several famous musicians and rock bands, including Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and The Doors.

The venue was closed in 1981 and demolished. The site is now occupied by a parking lot

Quote: The Paramount Theatre building still exists and was acquired by the City of Portland in the early 1980s. After extensive refurbishing, it reopened in 1984 as the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, home of the Oregon Symphony. The City owns the building which is part of the Portland Center for the Performing Arts. The marquee was restored to the original theatre name: "Portland."
