Given the diverse options available and the terrific reviews by the attendees, Sprint Center tickets are among the most sought after items among residents and tourists in Kansas City.

Highlights

  • Notable Concerts – From the time of its opening a decade ago, several music artists of different genres have performed here.

The inaugural concert at Sprint Center was performed on October 13, 2007, by none other than Sir Elton John. The show was sold out in less than ninety minutes.

The following month, country super star Garth Brooks performed nine back to back shows at the venue, all of which were sold out within two hours.  

Legendary singer Tina Turner’s first live concert in eight years was held at the Center in October of 2008. The event was part of her 50th Anniversary Tour and was a huge success. She returned to the venue a week after to put together another show to the delight of her fans.

Sprint Center today stands as a major destination on the touring calendar of renowned acts such as Jimmy Buffet, Katy Perry, Tim McGraw and others. It will soon be playing host to Lady Gaga’s Joanne World Tour in November and Lana Del Rey’s LA to the Moon Tour in January, 2018.

  • Notable Sports Events – Apart from being one of the top concert venues in the US, Sprint Center also serves as the hub for sporting events. The architects designed the center with professional sports in mind and it has served the purpose well.

The Classic Basketball Experience (CBE) event has been taking place at the venue since 2007, every year.

Besides, the Professional Bull Riders’ annual Built Ford Tough Series, which earlier took place at the Kemper Arena, is also held at Sprint Center since 2008.

Some of the notable sports events hosted at Sprint Center in the recent past include The NCAA Women’s Volleyball Final Four on December 16 and 18 of 2010. The September 27, 2011, match-up between the Los Angeles Kings and Pittsburgh Penguins, which saw a humungous crowd of 17,779 was another memorable event and so was the last episode of WWE’s ECW on Syfy hosted on February 16, 2010.  

  • Customized Personal Events – Sprint Center may be the place for celebrities from all walks of life, but this doesn’t mean you can’t plan your own event there.

The highly experienced and competent staff at Levy Restaurants will help you develop the perfect menu for your event. Facilities such as in-house security and audio/video technology are at your disposal. There will be an on-site event manager supervising your entire event with utmost attention to detail.
  • The Moons – The Moons is a work of public art created by artist Chris Doyle specifically for Sprint Center. It consists of a plaza with three elliptical gardens and hanging above each garden is a circular LED video screen (a moon) which plays a footage featuring over 600 people from Kansas City. The video is edited in a way so as to give the impression of them flying across the moon screens around the arena.

History

Sprint Center’s construction was a key element in the redevelopment efforts for downtown Kansas City.  The city officials believed that a brand new arena and the addition of a new entertainment district would bring the downtown area back to life. Hence, they employed the finest arena designers in the world to create this iconic structure called Sprint Center.

The Downtown Arena Design Team was a collaboration of four architectural firms namely Populous, Rafael Architects, Ellerbe Becket and 360 Architecture. The final design by this four-firm team led by Populous was selected in August of 2005. The task of construction management of the project was given to M.A. Mortenson Company. The facility officially opened in 2007.

Created as a replacement for the Kemper Arena, which was a few miles away, Sprint Center cost a whopping $276 million to build. However, all investment and efforts paid off as it has emerged to be a cutting-edge facility, one that serves as the main attraction in Kansas City.
