About Us

Top recording artists Elton John, Carrie Underwood, Justin Bieber, The Eagles, Lady Gaga, KISS, Taylor Swift, Jimmy Buffett, Bruce Springsteen and many, many more have visited the KFC Yum! Center in the past two years. Have you?

The KFC Yum! Center has achieved great success since opening in 2010 by attracting high profile events to Louisville. The arena was ranked 65th worldwide and 32nd in the U.S. in Pollstar Magazine’s 2012 year-end Top 200, recognizing arenas for concert and show ticket sales.

The KFC Yum! Center is also the official home of the University of Louisville men’s and women’s basketball programs and women’s volleyball program. Aside from being a great concert and sporting event venue, the arena also has breathtaking spaces to rent for large or intimate private events varying from weddings to luncheons.
