Lower bowl of Georgia Dome demolished

The roof will be closed for the first event and officials don't know exactly when it will open.

As Mercedes-Benz Stadium nears completion, the Georgia Dome is gradually getting torn down before its November demolition.

Brett Jewkes, spokesperson for the AMB Group, is always good about Tweeting out pictures of the Dome's decommissioning process.

First, we saw the Dome without seats.

On Thursday, Jewkes sent out a picture of the Dome with the lower bowl completely demolished.

The seats from the club level have also been removed.

Fans and former season ticket holders have purchased seats from inside the stadium, which opened in 1992. They were supposed to receive them several months ago, but a delay with the roof pushed the Mercedes-Benz Stadium opening form March to August. They kept the Dome as an insurance policy.

Nevertheless, they'll be receiving the seats soon.

The Georgia Dome is set to be demolished on Monday, Nov. 20 at 7:30 a.m.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium's first public event is the Atlanta Falcons' third preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals on Aug. 26 at 7 p.m.
