Which one of the BIG indoor arenas in North America can accomodate "outdoor" track and field?

I know "The Eye" arena in Japan is big enough. My guess for North American ditto are Montreal Olympic stadium, Rogers Centre Toronto and Lousiana Superdome.

Most of the posts in this thread aren't about multipurpose stadiums and arenas, but rather other events being held in purpose built venues. Just because Fenway has hosted concerts the odd football game, soccer game and a hockey game does not make it a multipurpose facility, its a ballpark. The Metrodome is a multipurpose facility, the Siatama Super Arena is multipurpose ect.
Posting any facility that has hosted a concert would make every stadium on earth multipurpose and that is not the intent of this thread.

Completely agree Benn. Most of the stadiums posted in this thread aren't true multi-purpose stadiums or arenas. I'd certainly agree that a stadium like the Saitama Super Arena is a better example of a multi-purpose stadium. To a lesser extent I'd include stadiums with movable seating. Examples of which are;
Etihad Stadium and ANZ Stadium in Australia allowing both rectangular sports and Australian Rules Football/Cricket to be played.
Stade De France allowing both athletics and rectangular sports.
Hisense Arena in Melbourne, a stadium with a velodrome and movable seats making it a conventional arena.
(Sorry examples are rather OZ specific).

basically you just qualified every NBA/NHL arena. They take seating movements to arrange for the different sporting events.

Which is fine if they actually have telescoping seating, if they just put some chairs on a flat floor behind the basket in a hockey arena I don't think that counts.

Just to clarify this is exactly what I was talking about. It might have been clearer had I said retractable seating.

When I originally posted this I didn't have an image of the stadium in it's velodrome configuration. You can see that the seating is suspended from the roof.

Yep the Original..

Boxing was really big in the US up through the late 50s. Many great matches occurred at original Yankee Stadium drawing crowds near 60,000.

From wiki..Italics are my edit

Boxing

When Yankee Stadium opened in 1923, the Polo Grounds continued to host boxing matches; however, Yankee Stadium was home to prizefighting beginning in its first few months. Benny Leonard retained the lightweight championship in a 15-round decision over Lou Tendler on July 24, 1923, in front of more than 58,000 fans. It was the first of 30 championship bouts to be held at the Stadium. (This excludes dozens of non-title fights.) The boxing ring was placed over second base; a 15-foot (4.6 m) vault contained electrical, telegraph, and telephone connections. In July 1927, the aging former heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey came from behind to defeat heavily favored Jack Sharkey by delivering several questionable punches that were deemed illegal. Sharkey had similarly bad luck in a July 1930 heavyweight championship bout at Yankee Stadium, when his knockout punch to Max Schmeling was ruled illegal; Schmeling won by default. In July 1928, Gene Tunney upheld the heavyweight title against Tom Heeney at Yankee Stadium, and then retired as champion.

Perhaps the most famous boxing match ever held at Yankee Stadium was on June 22, 1938, when Joe Louis, an African-American, squared off against Schmeling, a German. Adolf Hitler followed the rematch carefully, imploring Schmeling to defeat Louis, whom Hitler publicly berated. This left some with what they perceived as a moral predicament: root for the black fighter, or for the Nazi. Schmeling had defeated Louis in 1936, but in defense of his title, Louis knocked out Schmeling in the first round. This was one of eight championship fights the "Brown Bomber" fought at Yankee Stadium. The fight was the most significant fight in Yankee Stadium history with the world on the brink of World War II - a crowd of 66,277 witnessed Joe Louis take the heavyweight title from Max Schmeling via a devastating first round knockout.

On July 1, 1939, Max Baer defeated Lou Nova at Yankee Stadium, in the first televised boxing match in the United States. The event was broadcast by television station W2XBS, forerunner of WNBC-TV. (The World Series was not televised until 1947.) On September 27, 1946, Tony Zale knocked out New York native Rocky Graziano for the middleweight crown; it was the first of three bouts between Zale and Graziano.

In 1946 when Joe Louis fought Billy Conn for the heavyweight title the gate was estimated at 75,000

On June 25, 1952, middleweight champion Sugar Ray Robinson sought his third title against light-heavyweight champ Joey Maxim at Yankee Stadium. More than 47,000 saw Robinson outfight Maxim but lose due to heat exhaustion in round 14 (due to the weather that topped 104-degrees Fahrenheit). The referee who declared Maxim the winner was the second that night; the first had left the fight due to heat exhaustion.

Jun 26, 1959 - They Floyd Patterson beat Roy Harris for the first time on June 26, 1959, at New York's Yankee Stadium before a paltry crowd of 18,215 filed into the 60,000-seat stadium. Pitiful. TV killed boxing in the US.

After its 1970s renovation, Yankee Stadium hosted only one championship fight. On September 28, 1976, a declining Muhammad Ali defended his heavyweight crown against Ken Norton. To that point, Norton was one of only two boxers who had beaten Ali (in 1973); this was their third, and final, meeting. Norton led for most of the fight, but Ali improved in the later rounds to win by unanimous decision.

Astrodome? It's never used, in fact it's probably all but abandoned. But it's still standing. Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis (retractable seats) is another possibility.
