When it first opened in 1961, the Mellon Arena was known as the Civic Arena. Then in December of 1999, the resident Pittsburgh Penguins signed an $18-million, 10-year agreement to rename the Civic Arena the Mellon Arena, after the Pittsburgh-based bank.

While the original capacity of the Mellon Arena was 10,500, these and other renovations over the past three decades have increased that number to over 17,000.


The energy though from the band was just amazing, everyone was just totally into it.  I think notable standout songs fromthe already amazing set list were a really mellow cool version of Knocking on Heavens Door, Madagascar (which can basically be summed up as an EPIC performance, and "The Blues". Don't get me wrong the whole show was great, but these were just in a league of their own.

All in all just a performance that was above and beyond my already high expectations, amazing sound, almost live CD quality, and so much energy the crowd couldn't help but fall into it. GnR was just F'ngreat.
