Former Location –
Also known as the Michigan Theatre and the Michigan Building, in the 70’s the location hosted many concerts by such bands as The New York Dolls, Aerosmith, Spirit, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Climax Blues Band, Blue Oyster Cult and KISS.
Iggy & The Stooges played their last show ever here on February 9, 1974. The night before the gig, Iggy Pop went on a Detroit radio station and began to bait a local motorbike gang by calling them a bunch of pussies. The gang later turned up at the show and all hell broke loose. As soon as the band walked onstage, they were immediately bombarded with broken glass, beer jugs, bottles of piss and shovels. Needless to say Iggy had the crap kicked out of him.
