Memphis has a rather large pyramid thats being turned into a Bass Pro Shop I think.
The Pyramid Arena in Memphis Tennessee is one of the most uniquely designed structures on earth. The 32 story Pyramid is the third largest pyramid in
the world and soars even taller than the Statue of Liberty or the Taj Mahal. Managed and operated by SMG, this 21,000 seat sports and entertainment
facility is home to the NBA Memphis Grizzlies and the University of Memphis Men's Basketball Program and is well known for hosting national
basketball tournaments, concerts and family shows.
Here are a few quick facts about The Pyramid Arena:
On the bank of the Mighty Mississippi River, the arena is housed inside a 32 story stainless steel pyramid, paying homage to the Memphis' namesake -
Memphis on the Nile River.
This giant pyramid has more than a half million square feet of usable space inside.
With a footprint larger than six football fields, The Pyramid's base covers 360,000 square feet.
Seating capacity is approximately 21,000 for concerts and just over 20,000 for basketball
