    Concert Central

    ARCO Arena is the top venue for sports, entertainment and special events in the Greater Sacramento area.
    With over 200 spectator events each year, ARCO Arena is one of the busiest buildings of its kind in the United States.

    More than 2 million fans from around Northern and Central California visited ARCO Arena last year for events
    ranging from NBA basketball to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. ARCO has hosted such world-famous
    acts as the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Garth Brooks, and a growing role call of today's biggest names in entertainment.

    The $40 million, 442,000 square-foot arena opened in 1988 and was built without taxpayer money. The current
    configuration seats up to 17,317 and is versatile enough to host anything from ice shows to monster trucks.
    ARCO Arena is home to the Sacramento Kings of the NBA and the WNBA's Sacramento Monarchs. ARCO Arena has twice
    been host to the NCAA Western Regional Men's Basketball Tournament.

    Sacramento Memorial Auditorium: Concert!

    by Zydeco31 Updated Feb 3, 2004

    Josh Groban in concert

    One really great performance! The auditorium has pretty good sound, but it tends to echo as it is a pretty old building.

    Also, if you're sitting in the back row or in the balcony, you might want to bring some binoculars or opera glasses...

    Sacramento Memorial Auditorium: Best concerts and attractions for 71 years

    Josh Groban at Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento

    The Sac memorial auditorium was built in 1927 and was dedicated to all the Sacramento citizens who died in war. Though it is elegant in appearance, it is very warm and welcoming...to Sacramento natives, it just "feels like home" :) In it's 71 years, it has seen everything from the circus to the Grateful Dead to Josh Groban(which I enjoyed very much!!) Neil young will be the next to appear there on Feb. 23, 2004.

    Dress Code: There is no dress code-it just depends on what you are going to see there. If it is more of a formal occasion, people tend to follow the formal dress, but if it is something like a rock concert...lots of jeans and old shirts!!!! :)

  • Nightlife in Sacramento can go...

    by Jay_in_Cali Written Aug 24, 2002

    Nightlife in Sacramento can go a few different ways depending on what you're into. The restaurants all close by 10 or 11 p.m but the clubs and bars tend to be live until 2 a.m. Downtown is where most of the action is. You can find a college-age dance club like 815 L st--thats the name and address, or a simple watering hole like the Pine Cove at 29th and E st. Other bars to check out include: The Torch Club (15th and J) for great blues nightly, The Zebra Club (19 st and P st) for a shoulder to shoulder meat market, or Fanny Annes in Old Sac for 4 storys of music, dancing and drinking

    This old movie house has not only independent movies but also live concerts and other special events. During the jazz festival, it's one of the many venues downtown. The original theater on the site dates back to 1912; this one was built in 1946. After being closed for some years, it was reopened and restored in 1995.

    Dress Code: Come as you are.
