Demolition is almost complete

PHOTO GALLERY: Joe Louis Arena Demolition

The iconic stadium holds more memories than it did seats.

Demolition on the historic Joe Louis Arena is almost complete. The iconic stadium holds more memories than it did seats. From seeing the Stanley Cup return to the D to seeing the Detroit Shock win their second WNBA Championship title. "The Joe," as it is affectionately called, was the first place many Detroiters saw their first concert or sporting event. It's definitely held some memories for me. The Joe is where I fell in love with the Jonas Brothers and had my girlhood dreams come true when Omarion and Bowwow came for the infamous Scream Tour. We are all sad to see this iconic place go but we will always hold the memories in our hearts. The Red Wings and Pistons have a new home in Little Caesars Arena and we can't wait for the next generation of Detroiters to create their own memories there.
