Bridgestone Arena spreads across downtown Nashville and is home to the beloved Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League. The venue opened in 1996 and has capacity for more than 17,000 people for hockey events and up to 20,000 for musical concerts.
The arena also hosts basketball, professional wrestling, ice skating and boxing. You can also attend concerts from the likes of major recording artists, such as Cher, Dierks Bentley, Metallica and Pink. The venue transforms into the Music City Theatre for Broadway-style stage performances, intimate music nights and family shows.
Arrive early or stay late to enjoy drinks and food at Pete & Jerry’s Tavern near the SoBro entrance. You’ll find craft beer, sports-inspired cocktails and big-screens showing multiple sports events throughout the day and evening, in addition to happy-hour specials.
