I’m a Nashville native and in my 50+ years of living here, I’ve seen a lot of change. However, some of the things I remember from decades ago are still around like old friends. One of these is the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. This is a 10,000 seat auditorium with almost 70,000 sq/ft of exhibit space, which served as Nashville’s first convention center.
Nashville Municipal Auditorium
I’ve seen many legendary artists perform there including The Eagles, Journey, Elton John and Billy Joel. One of the more memorable shows was seeing Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band. On this occasion, Silver Bullet sax player Alto Reed was wireless mic’d (yes they had those then!) and came up into the audience two rows from where I was sitting. I had the thrill of watching him do the sax lines of “Turn The Page” from less than 20 ft. away.
This Nashville institution is now home to the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum. The 70,000 sq/ft of exhibit space is now a museum that displays local as well as traveling exhibits.
Nashville Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum
The Rolling Stones Exhibit at the Nashville Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum is on display through June 26, 2018. This display features over 500 artifacts from The Rolling Stones 54-year history.
