The Tacoma Dome is one of the best known structures in Tacoma, and is the world's largest arena with a wooden dome in terms of total volume and seating capacity (23,000), with a diameter of 530 feet (160 m) and a height of 152 feet (46 m). The facility is owned by the City of Tacoma, and was built in 1981 for an estimated $44 million. The Tacoma Dome officially opened on April 21, 1983, and David Bowie played the first concert at the Tacoma Dome.
