Sadly many venues are taken down and replaced by new ones. Still, the memories are there. This summer I am sure there were tailgate parties on the parking lot which used to hold the Phildadelphia Spectrum, for the Stones show this summer at Lincoln Financial Field, Tuesday July 23, 2019.Philadelphia Spectrum (arena)
From this article:
Composite "before, during and after" image of the Spectrum site. The top image was taken in April 2004, five-and-a-half years before the arena was closed. The middle image was taken seven years later as its demolition was being completed in April 2011. The white areas seen at ground level of this image were the back walls of the hockey and basketball locker rooms used by the Flyers, 76ers, Phantoms, Kixx, and Wings and visiting teams. The parking lot across Pattison Avenue from the Spectrum was the former site of Veterans Stadium (demolished in 2004). The bottom image is how the site appeared in September 2011 after it had been converted to a parking lot. All three images were taken from the same location in the Wells Fargo Center, the arena that replaced the Spectrum.
