During the first years of Crown Coliseums building, the venue was mentioned that it could be used by the NHL team Carolina Hurricanes temporarily, but it wasnt accepted by the leagues executive Bill Coffey. The venue hosted also TNA Wrestling events the including TNA iMPACT! broadcast. In December 2011, WWE brought the event Tribute to the Troops show to the arena.
To meet the needs of the large number of events that takes place at the arena including banquets, rodeos, basketball games, circuses, concerts and other exhibitions, the arena was renovated. The refurbishments included mainly the acoustics and sound systems, and that makes it one of the most versatile venues in the southeast of the country.
Several artists have stopped by the arena including for instance Kenny Loggins, Eli Young Band, Darius C. Rucker and the list goes long. Of course, the Crown Coliseum hosts games of the teams that take the arena as their home and others such as Fayetteville FireAntz, Knoxville Ice Bears, Columbus Cottonmouths, and Peoria Rivermen. There is always an event for anyone, so get ready to enjoy your attendance by booking tickets for an event that interest you.
