The History Of Billy Bob's Texas
The Building now known as Billy Bob's Texas was built in 1910 and was once a large open-air barn for housing prize cattle during the Fort Worth Stock Show.
In 1936, as a Texas Centennial Project, the building was enclosed by the City of Fort Worth at a cost of $183,500 and the tower added. The "new" structure contained 1257 animal stalls, and a 1200 seat auction ring that is now Billy Bob's Bull Riding arena.
The floor of Billy Bob's slopes from the entry toward the showroom stage, making an ideal elevation for concert seating.
This slope was originally constructed to allow easy cleaning and runoff from the cattle pens.

I still say this is one of those issues where millions of dollars are at stake and cooler heads should prevail, but most involved seem prepared to throw away (far from perfect, but the results of a lot of hard work by a lot of people) development plans and their ownership in Billy Bob's over hurt feelings.
