The North Charleston Coliseum is part of a complex that includes the Charleston Area Convention Center and the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. The city of North Charleston owns the complex, and the SMG Corporation provides management services. The Coliseum opened in 1993 to host its first event: the World Cup Figure Skating Champions ice skating exhibition. It was attended by a capacity crowd, and the following night, a riveting concert by country rock star Alan Jackson performed a second sellout show. North Charleston Coliseum events include a variety of shows from concerts to sporting events. The facility serves as the venue for non-conference basketball games for Charleston Southern University and has hosted concerts by top performers such as Hootie and the Blowfish. Other North Charleston Coliseum events include comedy and variety shows such as Tyler Perry's Madea Farewell Tour. Grab your North Charleston Coliseum tickets at StubHub.
