Mellon Arena (The Igloo) - Pittsburgh, PA
When it first opened in 1961, the Mellon Arena was known as the Civic Arena, and then in December 1999, the Pittsburgh Penguins signed an $18-million, 10-year agreement to rename the Civic Arena the Mellon Arena, after the Pittsburgh-based bank.
The Mellon Arena hosted its first show, the Icecapades, on Sept. 19, 1961. In addition to hosting SummerSlam in 1995, notable performances include The Beatles, Elvis Presley and the Page/Plant concert on March 25, 1995, which registered the highest attendance ever in the Arena (17,764) until January 30, 1999 when 18,150 fans packed the arena for a WWE live event.
The Mellon Arena is famous for its revolutionary architectural design which features the largest retractable, stainless steel dome roof in the world--170,000 total square feet and 2,950 tons of Pittsburgh steel. The Mellon Arena, which was featured in the 1995 film "Sudden Death" starring Jean Claude Van Damme, boasts a dome that is designed to open or close in just two minutes.
