The Syria Mosque – Pittsburgh

The Syria Mosque is my favorite concert hall. I saw some great concerts when I attended the University of Pittsburgh from 1971-1975. The Mosque was torn down in 1991.

This is a great article on the history of the Mosque. It was built by the Shriners and used by them in addition to the hosting of concerts. The capacity was 3,700.

This is a link to a list of concerts at the Mosque.

Here are shows I know I saw there. I’ll add more if I think of them.
