The Perth Entertainment Centre located in Wellington Street Perth opened in 1974. It has been host to many international and local entertainment events, including Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Abba and the Miss Universe contest in 1979. There was also a cinema on the ground floor.
Closed since 2002, Perth’s iconic venue is soon to be demolished in 2011 to enable the rail system to be lowered underground.
The State Library of Western Australia has photographs of construction and exterior of the building and interior seating in its Pictorial Collection. You can search the SLWA catalogue and click on the results.
