The U.S. Cellular Arena Milwaukee opened in 1950, and over the years has also been known as the Milwaukee Arena, MECCA Arena, and Wisconsin Center Arena. With a seated capacity of 12,700, the U.S. Cellular Arena Milwaukee is the ideal venue for concerts, sports games, family shows or corporate events.
Widely known as one of the first venues to cater to the needs of broadcast television, the U.S. Cellular Arena Milwaukee also once drew attention for its one-of-a-kind basketball court floor which was painted with rainbow-colored 'M's (for Milwaukee) on both half-courts. The U.S. Cellular Arena Milwaukee underwent a major renovation in 1998, improving technological capabilities and the venue experience in general for performers and audience alike.
The U.S. Cellular Arena Milwaukee has always drawn the biggest names in entertainment to its calendar; The Beatles, KISS, Elvis, Prince, Nirvana, AC/DC, Frank Sinatra, Greenday, Daughtry and the Cheetah Girls are just some of the musical acts who have featured on the U.S. Cellular Arena schedule over the decades. The venue is currently home to the Milwaukee Panthers men's college basketball team, as well as the MISL's Milwaukee Wave, so it would follow then that both basketball and soccer also feature regularly on the U.S. Cellular Arena schedule. In 2001, the Wisconsin Center District added the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame to a promenade area alongside the U.S. Cellular Arena.
