The Hirsch Memorial Coliseum is a 10,300-seat multi-purpose arena in Shreveport, Louisiana. It was built in 1954. It is located adjacent to the Independence Bowl stadium and across from Fair Park High School in Shreveport. The Hirsch was home to the Shreveport Mudbugs ice hockey team, from 1997, until they moved to the CenturyTel Center, in Bossier City in 2000. It hosted the 1981 Atlantic Sun Conference men's basketball tournament and has hosted the Southland Conference men's basketball tournament six times. It also has a long history as a concert venue. In January 1995, it was the scene of a small scale riot, when a Pantera concert was cancelled at the last minute, because of a city ordnance that had just gone into effect, requiring seating on the floor, which the band felt created an unsafe situation for the fans and themselves.
