The Mellon Arena has exemplified every trait of a world class entertainment facility. Originally built to house the Civic Light Opera, the Mellon Arena is home to a variety of family shows and has hosted such music legends as Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, six sold-out nights of Garth Brooks and The Grateful Dead.

The Mellon Arena is famous for its revolutionary architectural design which features the largest retractable, stainless steel dome roof in the world--170,000 total square feet and 2,950 tons of Pittsburgh steel. The roof, which has no interior supports, is divided radially into eight leaves and is supported by a huge cantilever arm that arches 260 feet. The Mellon Arena, which was featured in the 1995 film "Sudden Death" starring Jean Claude Van Damme, boasts a dome that is designed to open or close in just two minutes.

In the Fall of 1967, the Mellon Arena became the home of the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pens have since earned two Stanley Cup Championships--1991 & 1992. Other notable sporting events hosted at the Arena have been the Larry Holmes vs. Renaldo Snipes heavyweight boxing match in 1981, the 1983 World Figure Skating Championships, and the NCAA Division One Men's Basketball Championship Tournament first and second rounds in 1997.

The Mellon Arena offers you the opportunity to see your favorite show or sporting event in style and comfort from one of our Premium Seating areas. Whether it's a Gold Circle Box, an Igloo Seat or a Luxury Suite, you'll enjoy royal treatment from our courteous and attentive staff. The Mellon Arena boasts two exclusive dining clubs--The Blue Line and the Igloo Club, both of which are available for private parties and events. For more information on how you or your organization can purchase Premium Seats, contact the Pittsburgh Penguins at (412) 642-1300.
