Located outside Detroit, the Pontiac Silverdome once hosted the Super Bowl, the NBA finals, a visit from The Pope, the World Cup, and concerts by Elvis, Metallica, Elton John, NSYNC, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones.

Note: The stadium closed in February 2006 and briefly reopened in April 2010. As per the comments on Facebook, the Silverdome hosted sporadic events in 2011 and 2012.
