The arena opened its doors to much fanfare on Sept. 8, 2016, after years of debate and construction.
Country superstar Keith Urban was the first performer to hit the stage for a concert at the arena, although there was a top secret concert held weeks earlier as a way to test the facility’s lights, sound and stage.
