Venue Information

The Nashville Municipal Auditorium (informally known locally as Municipal Auditorium or simply Municipal) was the primary indoor sports and concert venue in Nashville, Tennessee from the time of its completion in 1962 until the completion of Sommet Center (informally known as "the Arena") in 1996.

Having served the greater Nashville area with many diverse events for the past 45 years, today the Auditorium is the venue of choice for major touring family shows, such as Sesame Street Live, the Wiggles, Doodlebops, Barney, Bob the Builder, and Playhouse Disney Live.

The venerable venue continues to serve niche concert markets, such as urban (Bow Wow, Young Buck, Young Jeezy), alternative rock (Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes, Plain White t's, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace), oldies (1964 The Tribute, Rock & Roll Party with the Crystals, Tokens) and Hispanic concerts (Juan Gabriel, Los Tigres Del Notre).

The Auditorium is also a favorite venue for religious events, having hosted Mt. Zion Baptist Church New Day Conference, Teenmania's Acquire the Fire, Dare 2 Share Ministries, and the Tennessee Baptist Convention Youth Evangelism Conference.

The Auditorium has hosted minor league hockey, with the teams known as the Dixie Flyers, South Stars, Knights, Nighthawks, and Ice Flyers. It has also hosted minor league basketball - Stars and Jammers,and women's professional basketball - Noise. It was a home court for the Belmont University basketball teams while Striplin Gym was being rebuilt into Curb Event Center. Additionally, the NMA has hosted several Ohio Valley Conference basketball tournaments, and the Auditorium is slated to host the OVC again in 2008.
