Reba McEntire opened the arena with a stunning live performance on November 6, 2009. Since then, the Allen Event Center has rocked out, got the blues and laughed the night away with acts like Daryl Hall and John Oates, B.B. King, Chicago, The Doobie Brothers and Boston, and SNL alums Dennis Miller, Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon. Never to be forgotten, the kids have been mesmerized by Disney on Ice, Scooby Doo and the Wiggles. There’s nothing quite like a little girls face the first time she sees her favorite Disney princess in person or watching a boy solve the mystery plaguing Scooby Doo.
