Bridgestone Arena - Nashville, TN

It’s no small feat to be named the best venue for large-scale music productions in a place called Music City—but that’s just what Bridgestone Arena is known for. Located in lively downtown Nashville, the arena is also home to the NHL’s Nashville Predators, and it can accommodate more than 17,000 hockey fans.

Besides Predators home games, Bridgestone Arena has also hosted major men’s and women’s college basketball games over the years, including the NCAA Tournament. Other events that have taken place there include figure skating, gymnastics, bull riding and arena football. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Ariana Grande and Stevie Nicks are just a few of the musical headliners who have graced its stage. The CMT Music Awards took place there until 2016, and the venue continues to host the CMA Awards.

A 22-story tower sits on the site as well, housing a small theater, the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, and XM radio broadcasting and recording studios.

The Bridgestone Arena is right in the heart of downtown Nashville at 501 Broadway. Parking is available at garages throughout the area, and the center has a parking garage on 6th Avenue. Visitors must leave items such as professional photography equipment, laptops and tablets, selfie sticks, and outside food and drinks at home.

The Nissan Atrium Food Court and the Patron Platinum Club offer dining options from fast food to gourmet cuisine. For something off-site, Nashville boasts one of the region’s most buzzworthy food scenes—be sure to try the city’s famous hot fried chicken.
