Tucson's community hub - the Tucson Convention Center
The Tucson Convention Center (TCC) is located in Downtown Tucson, AZ. This venue features a variety of performances, concerts, and special events in the Arena, Music Hall, Leo Rich Theater, Exhibition Halls and Meeting Rooms. The Tucson Convention Center Music Hall holds most of the intimate live music concerts.
Although there has been a gap between major TCC concerts and other big show events, new acts are being booked. The TCC Arena is suitable for large events with seating near 10,000. Tucson music events are expected to continue.
The TCC hosts a variety of events including concerts, sports, the annual Tucson Gem & Mineral Show, WWE wrestling, the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, theater, shows, and other events. Plans for the addition of a new arena that will support 12,500 seats and other proposals to expand the TCC will eventually make it more suitable for large scale concerts, theater productions and other events that bypassed Tucson's small facility size.

The Tucson Convention Center (TCC) was built in 1971. The facility includes a 9,275-seat indoor arena, two performing arts venues, and 205,000 square feet of meeting space.
The TCC was originally called the Tucson Community Center when first opened, but the name was later changed from Tucson Community Center to the Tucson Convention Center to reflect the marketing towards conventions and larger meeting events. Now, the term Tucson Arena refers to the main facility.
