Oh the fond memories of traveling over to Shreveport and the Hirsch and it's many firsts! My first rock concert, my first rodeo, my first circus, taking my children to the circus, the state fair....fun times!

Boy I saw some good concerts in there. You damn sure couldn't hear them. The sound in there was horrible.

They sure could put on a rummage sale though.

Bachman Turner Overdrive - first on I saw there


My wife saw Elvis there, she went with her Mom. They also went to see him off at the airport (the next day?) - Her Mom drove her and her little sister up to the front of the airport, dropped them off, and then went off to park and just sat in the car while they found thier way to the gate (outside) to watch him board. Think this was his 1975 tour.

Parker Coliseum

There is a sister building to the Hirsch in Baton Rouge. Parker Coliseum on the LSU campus. It's funny to look over and see this miniature Hirsch. I could not find a decent picture.

I remember seeing some Centenary basketball games at the Hirsch as a kid. When I was about 12, I saw the Harlem Globetrotters live with Curley and Meadowlark. The Ringling Bros Barnum and Bailey circus was cool. My first concert was Sonny and Cher, and my first concert with a date was the Doobie Brothers, second was Styx. Oh the memories. Nodding, acoustics were aweful in that place. Why did Shreveport let Bossier steal the show with the Centurytel arena? That would better serve us than the convention hall and hotel. I have yet to step foot in that place.

More up-to date (2006) aerial, but it looks pretty much the same.

I always wondered why the copper roof looked blue instead of green. I've seen a lot of "green pennies" but never a "blue penny" that I recall....

Then you have truly missed out on some good concerts and an awesome facility! Good seating from all over, fairly good sound for an arena, clean, safe, non smoking and great location in a low crime part of town!

I haven't missed out, I go to Centurytel all the time. Go Mudbugs! I'm just rootin' for Shreveport. Why must Bossier kick our butts all the time?

Shreveport misses out because we're too concerned about racial issues and doing studies on cultural demographics and the black churches and who owns the propoerty that might make some money or more importantly who's not going to make money. Bossier decides on a project and they do it.

Shreveport has missed out on so much it's not even funny. It's obvious to anyone who pays attention. Bossier is ready to do business, Shreveport is ready to give somebody the business. Look at the Red River District. Nobody made it, the rent was so high and then the Homeboys started hanging out there nobody would come. Same can't be said for the River Walk.

That's always been the case. Hello Centurytell. That was the nail in the coffin for Shreveport entertainment and the Hirsch.
