General Information:

Nordic Ice Arena was a notable, yet short-lived, arena that operated from 1974-1978. In addition to ice skating, it also featured a few rock concerts. Kiss was probably the biggest show, appearing here on April 5th, 1975 with the Mike Quatro Band. REO Speedwagon played here on April 25th of the same year. Hartland Township didn't approve of the concerts. They filed a complaint against the operators of the arena, claiming the concerts violated local zoning ordinances. There were also complaints from some of the local residents related to parking, traffic, drug use, etc.

The venue eventually became the Livingston Community Arena in 1978. The building became a BMX track in 1982. The final iteration was Hartland Lumber & Hardware Co. Sometime between 2005 and 2009, the building was demolished. A Noble Appliance store sits on the lot today at 10400 Highland Rd.
