American Airlines Center - Dallas, TX

Opened in 2001, the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas is home to the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and the NHL’s Dallas Stars. Since its opening, the arena has hosted hundreds of events including sporting events, conventions, circuses, rodeos, WWE wrestling matches, Disney on Ice shows and live music concerts. Its stage has been graced by world-famous bands and musicians including Paul McCartney, Beyonce, Madonna, Katy Perry, Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Billy Joel and Elton John. In 2015, American Airlines Center: Dallas was named the fifth busiest arena in the U.S. and 10th busiest in the world by Billboard Magazine.

The 840,000-square-foot venue can accommodate 20,000 concertgoers, 19,200 basketball aficionados, and 18,000 hockey fans. The arena boasts state-of-the-art facilities including 1,080 HD video scoreboards with eight sides and four video displays, a one-of-a-kind retractable seating system that allows the floor to change over in two hours, and an audio system with surround sound capabilities. The arena has five multi-level concourses, a number of meeting rooms, several food concessions and bars, and fan shops. There are 5,000 parking spaces located within two blocks of the arena. If you want to learn more about the teams and the history of the arena, tours are available by appointment.

It’s good to know the policies of American Airlines Center so you can enjoy an event without any problems. If you have plans to watch a Mavericks or a Dallas Star games, most of the doors open 90 minutes prior to the game. Doors typically open about an hour before concerts and events, unless specified otherwise. Outside food and drinks are not allowed. Bags must not exceed 14"x14"x6”. Non-professional, non-flash still photography is permitted at most events, although cameras of any type may be prohibited by the request of the artist or team. iPads, video cameras, audio recording devices, monopods, tripods, selfie sticks, and cameras with telephoto or interchangeable lenses are prohibited inside the arena.
