Bojangles Entertainment Complex

The Bojangles Entertainment Complex is comprised of Bojangles Coliseum and Ovens Auditorium. The two venues are owned by the City of Charlotte and operated by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA). A new 35,000-square-foot addition includes hospitality space, new concession options, additional public restrooms and more.

The historic Bojangles Coliseum and Ovens Auditorium opened on Independence Boulevard in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sept. 11, 1955. It was the city's first civic auditorium and dedicated sports and concert venue. Over the years, the multipurpose venues have hosted a wide array of shows, including top-touring concerts, sporting events, family shows, comedy shows, Broadway, symphony and opera performances, nationally known speakers, graduations and other diverse entertainment events. Bojangles Coliseum served as the home ice venue for hockey in Charlotte from 1956 to 1977 and again from 1993 to 2005. In 2015, the AHL Charlotte Checkers, affiliate of the NHL Florida Panthers, returned home to the coliseum.
