This is the former site of the Minneapolis Auditorium. Opened in 1927 and demolished in 1989, it had a couple of legendary shows in the late 60's.

On Nov 2, 1968, Jimi Hendrix played here. Eight days later, on Nov. 10, 1968, The Doors played here.

On July 3, 1970, The Who played here.

The site is now the location of the Minneapolis Convention Center and no longer a venue for music, although the Minnesota Rollergirls occasionally rock the place out.

The guitarist Django Reinhardt played the Mpls Auditorium on November 13, 1946 with Duke Ellington's orchestra. It was his only U.S. tour.

Check out this photo collage related to that show.
