12 Pontiac Silverdome Photos That Add History To Failed Implosion

Home to the Detroit Lions, Detroit Pistons, and a ton of great memories.

Whether you were old enough to see Wrestlemania 3, Elvis Presley, or the last Warped Tour at the Pontiac Silverdome, you know that since then, the famous venue has been left to decay, and has been an urban exploring playground for many years.

The city deemed that they were going to try and blow it up, or rather, implode it. Well, like many things that happened in correlation with the Lions, it failed. (Sorry Lions fans, but you know it's true.)

Check out some of these grungy but historical images of the famed center, and what it looked like prior to its famed implosion.
