Over the last 4 years, the iconic Tingley Coliseum has undergone radical upgrades, including everything from new energy efficient state-of-the-art house lighting systems and a complete new arena floor and drainage system, to renovated vendor spaces, bathrooms, lobby, breezeways, HVAC and ventilation systems. Roy Rogers and Dale Evans inaugurated the venerable coliseum in 1957, and since then it's played host to world-class entertainers including Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, KISS, Metallica, the Doobie Brothers, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks ... the list goes on and on. Tingley has also been home to a host of semi-pro sports teams such as the New Mexico Scorpions Hockey Team and the Albuquerque Thunderbirds to name just a couple. But while Tingley's history is certainly rich, it is the future that EXPO is looking to ensure. To that end, millions have been spent bringing the coliseum into the 21st century to make it a truly unique environment for performers and audiences alike.
