Bojangles’ Coliseum, located at 2700 East Independence Boulevard, is just minutes from Center City. The historic venue hosts concerts, family shows, world-class figure skating, rodeo and bull riding competitions, and a host of other diverse entertainment events for all ages to enjoy.
The landmark dome opened in 1955 as Charlotte’s first coliseum and served as the region’s major sports and entertainment facility for over 30 years. The building closed in 1988, but after extensive refurbishing and retrofitting, 11,000 seat venue reopened to the public in 1993. The renovation restored the coliseum’s classic ambiance.
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 creates memories that last a lifetime.
The Charlotte Checkers, top developmental affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, have sent more than 35 players to the NHL since joining the American Hockey League in 2010. The team’s history dates back to the first professional hockey game in Charlotte played at what is now Bojangles’ Coliseum in 1956.
