When The Palace opened in 1988, it revolutionized the way arenas were built. Its design has been the basis for nearly every arena built since.

The final concert held at The Palace was Bob Seger on Sep. 23, 2017. A few weeks later, the final event at the venue was the Taste of Auburn Hills on Oct. 12, 2017.
