About Bill Graham Civic Auditorium -

Built in 1915 as part of the Panama–Pacific International Exposition, the auditorium hosted the 1920 Democratic National Convention, the San Francisco Opera from 1923 to 1932 and again for the 1996 season, the National AAU boxing trials in 1948, and it was the home of the San Francisco Warriors of the National Basketball Association from 1964 to 1967. In 1992, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to rename the auditorium after the rock concert impresario Bill Graham, who had died the previous year in a helicopter crash.

The arena holds 8,500 and has hosted concerts by many famous artists, including The Black Crows, The Grateful Dead, Lady Gaga, Prince, Slayer, Tool, The Who and many others. It is owned by the City of San Francisco and since 2010 has been operated by Another Planet Entertainment.
