Frank Erwin Center - Austin, TX (45 Upcoming Events)

Austin, Texas, isn’t just the home of the University of Texas Longhorns—it’s rightfully earned a reputation as one of the live music capitals of the world. The Frank Erwin Center has been catering to sports and music fans since opening in 1977 with a basketball game between Texas and the University of Oklahoma. Bandleader Lawrence Welk performed less than four months later, marking the venue’s first concert. Since then, the arena has welcomed more than 25 million visitors.

Many enhancements have been made to the facility over the years with the largest—a $55 million renovation and expansion—taking place between 2001 and 2003. This included the addition of 28 suites, new scoreboard and video signs, and upgrades to the concession areas and restrooms.

Longhorn basketball draws fans from around the country to Frank Erwin Center each year, and major musical acts like Ed Sheeran, Fleetwood Mac, Paul McCartney and Prince have graced its stage. The venue has also hosted American Idol auditions, ESPN GameDay and a lecture by the Dalai Lama.

Conveniently located off Interstate 35, Frank Erwin Center is within walking distance of downtown Austin and the state capitol. Hotels are plentiful in the area, with a few located only a short distance from the venue. Those seeking a bite either before or after an event will find that the city has a vibrant culinary scene. Zilker Park, South Congress Street and Lady Bird Park offer visitors a glimpse into the city’s unique personality.
