About the venue
The auditorium was designed by renowned Bay Area architects John Galen Howard, Frederick Meyer and John W. Reid, Jr. and built in 1915 as part of the Panama–Pacific International Exposition. The auditorium hosted the 1920 Democratic National Convention, National AAU boxing trials in 1948, and it was the home of the San Francisco Warriors of the National Basketball Association from 1964 to 1967. The World Cyber Games 2004 were held in the auditorium.
In 1992, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to rename the auditorium after the rock concert impresario Bill Graham, who had died the previous year in a helicopter crash.
The arena has hosted concerts by many famous artists, spanning many different genres. It is owned by the City of San Francisco and since 2010 has been operated by Another Planet Entertainment, generating about $100,000 in leasing revenue for the city annually.
