Located on the San Diego State University campus, Viejas Arena provides the school's students -- and the rest of the county -- with a fantastic venue for college basketball and acclaimed concerts. The arena's large size and modern facilities have attracted visitors from around San Diego, and provide a great place for the myriad of ticketed events that are scheduled at the Viejas Arena every week.
Originally named the Cox Arena, the Viejas Arena at Aztec Bowl was constructed in 1997 as a replacement to the Aztec Bowl football stadium (Aztec football is now at Qualcomm Stadium). Currently, tickets have been flying out of the box office for the recently successful men's and women's San Diego State Aztec basketball teams, as well as the school's commencement ceremonies. Viejas Arena also schedules some of the biggest musicians in the country, and audiences drive from all over San Diego County for shows. Its location on the 8 freeway, just east of the 15, best accommodates visitors from East County and Hillcrest/Normal Heights area, but people are more than willing to make the trip for the venue's spacious design, ample parking, and, of course, stellar lineups.
Guests to the Viejas Arena will find a schedule of world class entertainment, on or off-season, a friendly staff, and great accommodations at this San Diego landmark. Check the calendar above for a list of events, and make sure you buy all your tickets for Viejas Arena on Eventful.
