Philips Arena History

Looking for a memorable night out in Atlanta? Well you have found the right spot in Philips Arena. Not only is the venue home to the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA and the Atlanta Dream of the WNBA but it also sells over half a million concert tickets each year as some of the biggest and best bands and musicians find their way to the stage at Philips Arena. Philips Arena began construction in 1997 but did not open until 1999 when it held its much anticipated first event, a concert by Sir Elton John. Since that first event several big time events have been held at the arena from sports to concerts to conventions. The 680,000 square foot arena can hold over 21,000 guests for concerts, over 17,000 for hockey games and over 18,000 for basketball games. The construction of the arena was put in motion by Ted Turner who at the time owned the Atlanta Hawks. Turner's main goal in building the arena was not just to give the Hawks a new home but also to build a state of the art multi-sport arena in order to lure an NHL team back to the Atlanta area. He was successful in that goal in that the Thrashers soon arrived in Atlanta in 1999 although the team moved to Winnipeg in 2011.


Philips Arena Events

Concerts are a major part of the annual schedule at Philips Arena and when they are bringing in superstar acts like Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Shania Twain, Madonna, R.E.M., Madonna, John Fogerty, and many others there is no place in the world any music lover would rather be. The arena was designed with big time concerts in mind and the acoustics are unparalleled. Next time your favorite musical act comes to town be sure to catch them at Philips Arena. Many of the hottest sports events in Atlanta take place in Philips Arena. Philips Arena serves as the home of the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA as well as the Atlanta Dream of the WNBA. Aside from concerts, Philips Arena is definitely most known as a basketball arena, it has hosted the NBA All Star game, the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, and was home to the Georgia Tech men's basketball team during the 2010-2011 college basketball season. It was home to the Atlanta Thrashers of the NHL while they were in Atlanta, and has hosted WWE events, the US Figure Skating Championships, Stanley Cup Playoff Games, and NBA Playoff Games.
