Dallas' Bronco Bowl is closing its doors to make room for a retail/restaurant complex to be anchored by Home Depot that will help revitalize the Oak Cliff area. However, it will remain open through October while final plans for the land are developed.
The 3,500-seat venue saw such artists as Bob Dylan, U2, R.E.M., Midnight Oil and
Backstreet Boys. Motorhead and Anthrax are scheduled to play there May 22.
"It's nostalgic, of course, to lose the Bronco Bowl. It's been here for 40 years," Dallas
Mayor Laura Miller said. "But this is a terrific project."
Bronco Bowl owners filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 2003.
