Arena Music Now On Spotify!
On June 6th 1992 the arena opened it's doors to the public for the first time as George Straight came to town to help launch the newest entertainment venue in Phoenix. Since then music has been a major part of the arena's history. Every major act from music has graced the stage inside of Talking Stick Resort Arena. U2, Garth Brooks, Neil Diamond, Metallica, Prince, Beastie Boys and more.
The first concert that I ever went to, was Bush in 1997, with Veruca Salt as the opener. And I always remember the first song that Bush played the night. Many concerts later I would always compile a playlist of songs that the band I just saw played, and then listen to them to relive the experience of that concert. As the arena changed over with a relaunch of a fresh new website and name, I thought there might be others out there like me who would also like to go back and relive the music they once heard at a concert here at Talking Stick Resort Arena.
With that I happily present to you our Spotify Channel! You can go in and click on a Playlist year to listen to all the bands that stopped by, or you can look by date and listen to the setlist that an artist performed! Did you go see Aerosmith when they played here in July of 1993? Now you can go to their Setlist Playlist and listen to the songs that they performed at that concert!
Of course not all songs from all concerts are able to be added. Some musicians like to spring a surprise cover song here and there, or some artists just are not found on Spotify, but we are excited to grow this playlist into something that fans of music all around will enjoy. We will be adding more and more music to this as time goes on with setlists and some that we might put together for other arena events to get you hyped up!
