The United Center is an indoor arena located at 1901 West Madison Street in Chicago, Illinois 60612. Slightly North of I-290 and just east of I-90 and near several metro stops, it is a convenient place for locals and travelers who are intrigued in any large-scale indoor events that cut through the Midwest. For more information about this venue, keep reading.
Opened in 1994, the United Center replaced the old Chicago Stadium. The 960,000 square foot building cost a modest $175 million at the time it was built. It claims to be “the largest arena in the United States.” The seating design can hold up to 23,500 people for concerts, but that number varies by a couple thousand depending on the floor configuration and layout. That means that since opening, more than 40 million people have attended an event at the United Center.
Do not let the audience size and building size mislead you. The United Center is not all quantity of quality. With recent renovations, it has become a comfortable space for many patrons. In 2009-2010, it added a 300 level, complete with new screens, food and beverage stations, and panoramic bars. The court obtained a new floor in 2015-2016, too. In 2019, an elevated, premium scoreboard was installed, which is currently the most massive in the NHL and NBA.
Although the United Center is capable of creating a variety of event experiences for guests, sports are clearly a big attraction. This is represented on the outside of the lot. Although a relatively contemporary design, the outside of dotted with amazing statue that ground the space, featuring athletes including Michael Jordan, Bobby Hull, Stan Makita, Scottie Pippen, and even a sports broadcaster – Johnny “Red” Kerr. Beyond the sports statues, two popular teams, filled with phenomenal athletes, bring in the crowds: The Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Hawks.
A steady stream of events – at least 200 events annually – fills the United Center. Political conventions, concerts comedy shows, sports games, and ice theater are among the arena’s regular offerings. In terms of upcoming and recent events, the United Center has hosted All Star games, comedian Gabriel Iglesias, comedy group Wild’n Out, and musicians such as Tame Impala, James Taylor, Billie Eilish, Elgon John, Bon Jovi, and more Harry Styles.
