Gila River Arena, previously known as Jobing.com Arena, brings the outskirts of Phoenix alive with sporting matches and entertainment events. It’s run under a partnership with the Gila River Indian Community and is home to the Arizona Coyotes NHL hockey team.
The arena has played host to a variety of international music stars, including The Rolling Stones, Kenny Chesney, Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry. Check the schedule to find events ranging from circuses to professional bull riding and family-friendly shows, such as “Nickelodeon Story Time Live!”
The venue features dozens of luxury suites as well as a full-service bar at Fireball Terrace. It’s a core part of the Westgate Entertainment District where you’ll find an array of trendy bars and restaurants. Arrive early to enjoy light bites and cocktails at The Lola Cocktail Lab and Eatery or craft beer at State 48 Funk House Brewery.
Gila River Arena anchors the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale, just east of Arizona Loop 101 and about 19 kilometres north-west of downtown Phoenix. It’s accessible by the Valley Metro light rail and parking is available on site, while taxis, rideshare services and hotel shuttles operate in the area.
