Oldie but a Goodie - DMT delivers at the United Center

United Center (The UC, The Madhouse on Madison) is an indoor arena on the Near West Side of Chicago, Illinois, United States. It is home to the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL). It is named after its corporate sponsor, United Airlines, which is based in Chicago, since 2007, and also has a hub at O'Hare International Airport, also located in Chicago. With a capacity of nearly 21,000, the United Center is the largest arena by capacity in the National Basketball Association, and the largest arena by capacity in the United States in the National Hockey League.

Opened in 1994, the United Center replaced the Chicago Stadium, it's now demolished, predecessor. The first event held at the United Center was WWF Summerslam. Due to the lockout, the Chicago Blackhawks did not move in until January 1995. In 1996, the United Center hosted the 1996 Democratic National Convention, where it first introduced a new style four-screen speech prompting system for speakers consisting of two glass teleprompters, accompanied by an inset lectern monitor, and for the first time, a large under-camera confidence monitor.

The arena is home to an iconic statue of Michael Jordan built in 1994. Originally located outside the arena, it now stands inside an atrium which was added in 2017. (Thanks Wikipedia!)
