Bojangles’ Coliseum is located just minutes from Center City and has hosted a wide array of diverse entertainment events including concerts, family shows, figure skating, rodeo and bull riding competitions. Through the years, artists such as Elvis, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Queen have all graced the historic stage here. The landmark dome opened in 1955 as Charlotte’s first coliseum and served as the region’s major sports and entertainment facility for more than 60 years.
The venue is currently being renovated to accommodate the return of an exciting new tenant, the AHL Charlotte Checkers. The team who once played there for decades will come home beginning with the 2015-16 season. The celebrated facility has been known by many names: Charlotte Coliseum, Independence Arena, Cricket Arena and now, Bojangles’ Coliseum. Through the years the name has changed, yet one thing has remained the same: the quality entertainment that is experienced at Bojangles’ Coliseum has made it a treasured community asset for more than 60 years with many more decades of entertainment still on the horizon.
