The roof of the Merriweather Post Pavilion, the site of some prime rock history involving The Who, Led Zeppelin and Jackson Browne, collapsed early Saturday morning.
The 50-year-old amphitheater in Columbia, Maryland has been undergoing renovations this winter. One project was to raise the roof 20 feet. No one was injured in the collapse and officials said in a statement that they'll build a new roof and be ready to open for the 2018 season.
The Who and Led Zeppelin played their only show together at the venue on May 25th, 1969. It's also where Jackson Browne recorded three tracks for his Running on Emptyalbum -- the title song, "The Load-Out" and "Stay" -- on August 27th, 1977.
I've seen several bands there. Rob Zombie, Godsmack, Shinedown, Halestorm, Alice Cooper, Chevelle, Faith No More, Sevendust, Puddle Of Mudd & Weezer to name a few.
