Eagles To Open Louisville Arena

The first event in a new downtown arena in Louisville built for basketball will be a rock concert by the Eagles.

The Louisville Arena Authority says the Eagles are booked at the KFC Yum! Center on Oct. 16. The Courier-Journal reports that public tours of the facility will be offered Oct. 11-13 and a VIP event is set for Oct 14.

The $238 million arena is to be the new home of the University of Louisville men’s and women’s basketball teams. Both teams will play their first games there in November.
