When it opened in 1967, the Spectrum was Philadelphia's first modern arena. Built as the home for the Flyers NHL expasion franchise, and the new home court of the 76ers, the building quickly became a hot sport for college hoops, tractor pulls, boxing and wrestling matches and, over the next four decades, more than 2300 concerts -- earning it the moniker -- "The House That Rock Built."
