The Hoosier Dome/RCA Dome was built with the hope of luring an NFL team. The plan worked when the Baltimore Colts to moved to Indianapolis before the facility was even completed. The Indianapolis Colts called the stadium home from 1984-2007. The name was changed to RCA dome in 1994, when RCA paid $10 million for the naming rights for 10 years.
The largest crowd (62,167) to attend an event was WrestleMania VIII in 1992.
As a concert venue the dome hosted The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Guns N' Roses and 'N Sync as well as Farm Aid in 1990.
The Dome was the site of numerous NCAA basketball events, gymnastics, Pan Am Games, Track and Field, as well as band competitions, SuperCross, Monster Trucks and religious events.
In September 2008, the Dome was deflated and the rest was imploded four months later. The Indiana Convention Center expanded onto the former site. The Colts now play in Lucas Oil Stadium.
