Time Warner Cable Arena
The Time Warner Cable Arena first opened its doors to the people of Charlotte, NC and the surrounding areas in 2005. Today, the venue is perhaps most well known for being home to the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, and the AHL's Charlotte Checkers.
Once inside the Time Warner Cable Arena, its most distinctive feature becomes evident immediately. Taking pride of place, hanging down from the center of the arena roof, is a state-of-the-art scoreboard and video display - the most technologically advanced scoreboard and sound system in the entire country! Despite the Time Warner Cable Arena itself being one of the newer NBA venues, this scoreboard feature is larger than any other used in an NBA facility. And the spectacle doesn't stop there. Positioned above the giant, hanging scoreboard is a 3D, back-lit cityscape which depicts the Charlotte skyline. A unique, 360 degree projection system enables the visual images to change, varying from day to night skies, and featuring passing airplanes, or fireworks for example.
Two major sports tenants mean that the Time Warner Cable Arena schedule is kept busy throughout the year. However, the venue has much, much more on offer in addition to these home games. Because of its state-of-the-art technology and 18,000+ capacity, the Time Warner Cable Arena has become a popular destination for many of the biggest names in music as part of their concert tours. The Rolling Stones, U2, Miley Cyrus, The Police, Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, The Eagles, Taylor Swift and Rihanna are just a few of those featured on the schedule throughout the years.
The venue also plays host to a variety of other entertainment events; everything from WWE and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, to TV show filming and more. With such a wide variety of events on offer in such a fantastic setting, it's easy to see why the Time Warner Cable Arena now stands as one of, if not the premier live entertainment venue in Charlotte.
