OUR HISTORY

Let's go all the way back to the beginning.

Our Story

The historic Bojangles' Coliseum and Ovens Auditorium opened on Independence Boulevard in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sept. 11, 1955. It was the city's first civic auditorium and dedicated sports and concert venue. Over the years, the multipurpose venues have hosted a wide array of shows, including top-touring concerts, sporting events, family shows, comedy shows, Broadway, symphony and opera performances, nationally known speakers, graduations and other diverse entertainment events.
