Scotty McCreery will be in Troy, Ohio at the Hobart Arena tonight

Hobart Arena

The Hobart Arena is a 3,782-seat multi-purpose arena in Troy, Ohio. It officially opened with 10 sold out performances of Holiday on Ice in September 1950. The Hobart Arena was the first Ohio venue for Elvis Presley on November 24, 1956. The 1950s also saw performances by Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Nat King Cole, Tex Ritter, Sonja Henie, Victor Borge, Liberace, Guy Lombardo, and Patti Page.

Hobart Arena was the home of the Troy Bruins of the IHL from 1951 through 1959 and the Troy (later Miami Valley) Sabres of the All-American Hockey League[1] from 1982 until the AAHL folded in 1989.

As a concert venue the arena can seat up to 5,282. When used for ice hockey, Hobart Arena has a sellout capacity of 4,500.[1] When used for trade shows the arena can accommodate 15,725 square feet (1,460.9 m2) of space. The arena contains four permanent concession stands, four dressing rooms and a referee's room, seven box-office windows, and a ceiling height of only 34 feet (10 m).

It was the home to the Miami Valley Silverbacks of the Continental Indoor Football League.

  1. I am hoping the sound here at Hobart Arena is better than last week at Dorton arena NC State Fair. It was so bad that if I did not already know all the words to Scotty's songs, I would not have understood him, and he enunciates really well. I will be there tonight as well as VIP Experience.
