GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena hosted it's final event on Saturday night.

Bret Michaels returned to give the crowd one more night of memories.

The arena hosted sporting events, concerts, and other entertainment for more than 60 years.

Michaels himself has returned several times.

He said that Green Bay and the arena will always be a special place.

"Green Bay for me, over so many years as everyone knows, coming here to play, the fans are unbelievably great," Michaels said. "There's three generations of them now, I've been doing this for a long time, and I'm one of those people who's completely grateful for what I get to do."

In three weeks, the arena will be demolished to make way for a new expo center.
