Memphis puts Pyramid on the shelf

February 4, 2007

The Commercial Appeal has an article on what may be the last hurrah for the Pyramid, the most amazing building in Tennessee. Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, ancient rulers of a sort, gave a concert in the 15 year old structure.

David Williams writes the piece, which contains this paragraph: “Today, we look back on a building that’s held 1,309 events drawing some 10,119,000 people, a building that’s been host to Michael Jordan, Mike Tyson, Leonardo da Vinci’s “tousle-haired lady,” the Lipizzaner Stallions, the Rolling Stones, Prince, Mankind and the Rock, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, monster trucks, and the Bolshoi Ballet.”
