The Winterland Arena, originally an ice skating rink founded in 1928, began it's quest in serving the exploding music scene in San Francisco on September 23rd, 1966 with a double bill of Jefferson Airplane and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, booked by the one and only, Bill Graham. With the closing of Fillmore Auditorium, renovations for Winterland commenced in 1971 and was converted to a full music venue. In 1978, Winterland was permanently closed, leaving some of it's most important history from thrill-seeking shows in its profoundly necessary show programs with iconic art of its psychedelic world to match.
