Someone Decided To Look Inside The Abandoned Silverdome


By on Thursday, October 22, 2015

The Silverdome was once a very popular venue hosting such sporting events like the Super Bowl, NBA Finals, and the World Cup. They also hosted concerts by Elvis, Metallica, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones. Also, don't forget that this stadium even had a visit from The Pope!

This is what the Silverdome looked like when it was operational.

And here is what it looks like today. That is quite the difference. Notice there is no longer a dome. We will touch on that later.

The Pontiac Silverdome was finally completed in 1975 and cost a total of $55.7 million!

But in 2009, they decided to auction it off for a mere $583,000. Wow, that's quite a price difference compared to how much it cost to build. This is also located in a city where they are buying people houses so they move there, residents are getting their water shut off for no reason, and people are literally selling their homes for nothing more than an iPhone 6 Plus.

In 1988, they even hosted an NBA playoff game between the Detroit Pistons and the Boston Celtics. Attendance for that game was 60,000 people. Hard to believe that a venue that used to hold that many people, could just close and all but disappear.

In 1982, the San Francisco 49ers won a Super Bowl in the Pontiac Silverdome.
