I missed this among all the Hurricane Ike news:

The Pavilion suffered severe damage to its Teflon coated Fiberglas fabric roof and support structure over the reserved seating area, said officials.

A structural engineering firm inspected the facility and concluded that The Pavilion should not be used for public gatherings until the fabric roof system and steel structure have been completely repaired.

“Our facility is unsafe in its current condition to hold any type of public event do to the damage,” said Jerry MacDonald, president and CEO of The Pavilion.

As for Reliant Stadium, work has begun to repair the damaged roof, as well as interior walls and carpets that were damaged by flooding when the roof panels were blown off.
