|Key Arena Tickets|
Seattle Center is the main place for entertainment in Seattle, Washington. Part of Seattle Center is Key Arena, which is home to the National Basketball Association's Seattle SuperSonics. The Seattle Storm of the Women's National Basketball Association, as well as the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League both play their home games at Key Arena.
When Key Arena first opened in 1962 it was known as the Seattle Center Coliseum. Beginning in 1995, Key Bank paid $15.1 million for 15-year naming rights. Key Arena underwent a $74.5 million renovation from 1994 until 1995. The exterior of the building remained unchanged while the interior saw the playing court drop 22 feet, the addition of 3,000 more seats in three new seating levels, and improved sight lines and concessions.
Key Arena is owned and operated by the city of Seattle. Over 10 million people have visited Key Arena since it first opened. Seating capacity for Seattle SuperSonics games stands at 17,072 people. Ice hockey and ice shows have a capacity of 17,098 people while stage-end and center-stage concerts hold 15,177 and 16,641 people, respectively. For guests in need of assistance to events at Key Arena, there are 155 wheel-chair seating locations, with 58 wheelchair locations in the suites.
The first NBA game at Key Arena took place on November 4, 1995, when the Seattle SuperSonics hosted the Los Angeles Lakers. Other events that have taken place in Key Arena include concerts from such performers as Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, and Celine Dion. Disney on Ice, various WWE events, and NCAA basketball have also been hosted at Key Arena.
Plans have been in the works since 2004 to expand Key Arena to twice its size, which will accommodate shops, restaurants, and a practice facility. Due to the fact that Key Arena and the surrounding property are owned by the city of Seattle, any new plans have to have support from the city government before the proposal is brought to Washington state legislature.
