Coleman Coliseum is the home venue for the University of Alabama's basketball, gymnastics, and volleyball teams. This is part of the front view. The building is huge and seats over 15,000. It opened in 1968 as Memorial Coliseum, but had a name change in 1988. When I was in college, it's where we went for registration and schedule pickup. Now, of course, all that is done online.
Coleman is used for commencement ceremonies and other large gatherings, including concerts. "Superstars who have performed on its stages include Elvis Presley, Tom Petty, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Reba McIntyre, Jay Leno and Hank Williams, Jr. "
