Brian Manzullo Detroit Free Press Published 10:27 AM EDT May 16, 2019 Though it’s time for Joe Louis Arena to go, you can’t help but feel sad as you watch the demolition process unfold. Thanks to Detroit Red Wings photographer Dave Reginek, we now have a new look inside the Joe as demolition work continues inside the arena. More: How the Joe Louis Arena demolition will work Reginek posted a variety of photos on his Facebook and Instagram pages Wednesday, including a 360-degree look from where center ice used to be. The ice is gone, of course. Though most of the beams are still up, the lower bowl is now piles of rubble. The views, especially from the concourse, are somewhat jarring, especially for those with fond memories of going to Red Wings games over the years. Joe Louis Arena opened in 1979 and hosted the Red Wings from 1979-2017. The Wings, who won four Stanley Cups in that span, hosted their final game at the Joe in April 2017 before moving to Little Caesars Arena in District Detroit. Unlike the Pontiac Silverdome, which went through an implosion, the Joe is being gradually disassembled, starting with the interior this spring. On mobile? Take a look at the Instagram post here.
