Billy Joel performed the first official event at Quicken Loans Arena in October 1994. On October 29, 2008, almost 20,000 people came to watch the Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama's television advertisement debut.
In addition to the main bowl seats, there are nearly 2000 club seats and over 90 luxury suites. There are five multi-screen video walls located throughout the arena that feature entertainment and sports highlights as well as upcoming event features. In addition, there are over 550 television monitors located in the concourse areas as well as the seating bowls. Radio play-by-play action can be heard throughout the concourse over mega speakers.
The arena has great scoreboards, video systems and a sound system that fans can enjoy. The production facility includes an on-line production suite, master control facility, TV and radio studios, and master lighting services.
Located next to Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians, the “Q” as Quicken Loans is affectionately called is part of the Gateway Sports and Entertainment Complex. The arena hosts Lake Erie Monster’s ice hockey team and arena football’s Gladiators. The Lake Erie Monsters franchise played its first season at the Q in the 2007-08 season.
There is a 55,000-square foot of parking garage located under the Q that can accommodate tour buses, semi-tractor trailers and even temporary housing when the circle animals need a place to stay.
The roof mimics the shape of Quicken Loans Arena but sits at a 90-degree angle. The arena covers approximately 750,000 square feet of space. At the entrance to the arcade area is a glass canopy that has 300-plus panes of glass.
For concerts and other non-sporting events, the Q features a curtain that can cover the seats in the 200 section of the bowl. It cuts the seating capacity almost in half, offering fans a personal, smaller area for these special events.
