Charleston Civic Center History

With the center opening all the way back in 1959, there's been plenty of time to mold an already great center into what it is today. Sporting a massive seating capacity to accommodate the droves of people that come in for the amazing shows, the Charleston Civic Center has room for more than 13,000 people for concerts, 750 for the little theater, and over 12,000 for basketball. Over the years, the Charleston Civic Center has become one of the places to find various entertainments, making it one of the very best places to be if you're looking for entertainment in the area. Once you're there watching a big show or game the way it was meant to be seen, you'll definitely be glad that you're not sitting anywhere else.

And to look at the various events that have gone down in the arena part of the civic center is to see some of the greatest musical acts in history. We're talking about Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, Garth Brooks and a few others you have, perhaps, heard of before. As the home of the countless other great events outside of music, however, this is the place that has a little something for everyone if you're looking for action around the Charleston, West Virginia area.


Charleston Civic Center Events

The Charleston Civic Center is a masterful architectural achievement that is composed of three main venues: the Civic Center Convention Center, Coliseum, and the Little Theater. Put it all together and you have so many options that your head might just be spinning if you take a look at the detailed calendar of events. One week you might find a legend like Elton John, the next it could be a dazzling, family-friendly performance by the Ringling Bros. and after that who knows, giving you plenty of reasons to put down the remote and head out for a night of entertainment that you won't soon forget.


Charleston Civic Center Trivia

Did you know that Garth Brooks set just about every box office record that the Civic Center has?

It started with a show that sold more than 12,000 tickets in minutes back in 1992, then it really all came together when Brooks came back to the stage in 1997. This time around, Brooks sold out four shows in no time, with fans braving temperatures near zero degrees to snap up nearly 50,000 tickets. Brooks certainly didn't disappoint either, rocking four straight shows and giving out a new car and an exotic vacation to fans who bought the two millionth ticket of his tour.


Charleston Civic Center Experience

With all of the awesome events that come through and the fantastic renovations that have gone into making the Charleston Civic Center, there's no better place to have some fun. Thanks to a bevy of different options and an exciting backdrop no matter the type of event, this is a place that you definitely don't want to skip, as it's become a staple of the local entertainment scene for a reason. Come out and see it all for yourself with a great show and you might even be kicking yourself for not making it out to the Charleston Civic Center a whole lot sooner.
