The Greensboro Coliseum Complex has hosted entertainment in this city since 1959.
It has been the site of athletic events, concerts, trade shows and conventions. The coliseum's spotlights have shown on a wide range of attractions, including ACC tournaments, ECHL hockey and entertainers from Elvis to Usher. Seating capacity at the venue is 23,500 following its latest renovation in 1994.
The complex has a 2,400-seat auditorium that accommodates touring Broadway theater shows as well as intimate concerts. Its 167,000-square-foot Special Events Center is a popular spot for trade and consumer shows.
