The Amway Center: Roundball to Music Superstars

Opened in 2010, the Amway Center serves as one of Orlando’s top attractions. It is the home of the Orlando Magic NBA team and in 2012 it hosted the NBA All-Star Game. You can also enjoy professional ice hockey here courtesy of the Orlando Solar Bears as well as Orlando Predators indoor football.

The Amway Center also brings a diverse roster of musicians, stand-up comedians, and other cultural forces to Downtown Orlando. Jason Aldean, Gabriel Iglesias, Billie Eilish, The Black Keys and Ariana Grande are just some of the recent names to grace the stage at the Amway Center. Tentative future events in 2020 include The Killers, Camila Cabello, Dan + Shay, and Jimmy Buffett.
