Grande Ballroom - National Register of Historic Places sign now

We the undersigned hereby nominate Detroits Grande Ballroom for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The Charles Agree designed Grande Ballroom has reserved for Detroit a place in international music history. An innovative venue for genre-establishing Michigan rock acts such as the MC5, the Stooges and the Rationals, the Grande also was the first venue to properly feature international acts of significant importance. The Who first presented the rock opera Tommy" at the ballroom and legends such as Janis Joplin, Cream, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck, Jefferson Airplane, and the Yardbirds were regularly showcased.
The Grande would be the fourth Charles Agree design to be registered, his first with such important cultural and historical significance.
