Memphis got its name from ancient Egypt. As a modern symbol of that heritage, this 32-story stainless-steel pyramid rises from the banks of the Mississippi River. Completed in 1991 at a total cost of USD65 million, the Pyramid serves as a sports and concert arena, with 22,500 seats. It also serves the University of Memphis, housing the Tigers' basketball games and university graduations. The history of the Pyramid's construction is loaded with scandal, controversy and danger, take a tour and learn the whole story. Tour admission varies.
Other than the well known Elvis Presley, there is another king of Memphis Tennessee. The amazing listening gleaming over the edge of the city. As you zoom over the great Mississippi river you will soon see a welcomeing silver shining pyrimid of great magnitude at the edge of the water and the city. Within various events are held such as concerts, games,the circus, and many other attractions. It is by far one of the most outstanding views of the city.
It is such a shame that now with the Fed Ex Forum, this building is sitting unused.
When was in used for sporting events and concerts, it was a decent venue. It looks really nice on the skyline of Memphis as one comes into the city. It was a great value and venue for sporting events. The only problem is that the seats were uncomfortable and the sound system sounds horrible due to the accoustics in a pyramid shaped building.
My funniest memory of the Pyramid is watching Van Halen play there like they can't wait to get the hell out there. The sound was that bad. LOL
It is unknown what the future holds for the Pyramid. There has been talks of using it for everything from an Indian casino to a giant church. Unfortunately it is all talk. The city still owes money on this place.
I graduated in the Pyramid, so it holds a special place for me! If you ca I would recommend see it. However, if there is nothing going on it can be a very boring place. It is great for concerts, and ball games.
i very much so loved the rooms. They were very comfortable and spacious. I would love to stay at your hotel again. Because i frequently go to Memphis (at least 1 or 2 a month) i will start staying there all the time.
