War Memorial Auditorium
Originally built to honor the Tennesseans who fought in the First World War (1914-1918) and memorialize the 3,400 who perished, the auditorium became the performance home of the Nashville Symphony (1925-1980) and the Grand Ole Opry (1939-1943). That legacy has continued—the pop culture in one era becomes a part of WMA’s colorful history in the next. Whatever the decade or style of music, hundreds of celebrity artists have performed here—David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, Procol Harem with opening act The Eagles, Ray Charles, Liberace, Jim Croce, KISS, R.E.M., Barry Manilow, Mumford & Sons, Jason Mraz, Them Crooked Vultures, The Dead Weather, Robert Plant, and more. At War Memorial Auditorium, history is always in the making. For the most updated listing of events at this historic venue, WMArocks.com.
