January 17th 2010, Edmonton, AB @ Rexall Place


I slept late last night to follow the show in Calgary, so tonight, since it’s Sundfay night, I won’t do LIVE updates.  But you can go to HTGTH.com to get them.  It was a very pleasant show wasn’t it?

So they are playing again tonight.  Our favorite Gunners are on fucking fire!

They are playing in Edmonton, Alberta.  Here are all the infos about the place they are playing in tonight.  Hope you enjoy all of those, and let’s hope that the show tonight will be as amazing as it was last night.  Chinese Democracy World Tour looks like a blast for everybody that attends the shows.  SO for those of you who don’t have tickets yet, and are asking themselvesif they should go, well the videos and the set lists of the past shows must have convinced you to go.

When the arena opened on November 10, 1974, it was known as Northlands Coliseum to house the World Hockey Association Oilers, named after the nonprofit organization that still owns the arena today. Then it became the Edmonton Coliseum in 1994, and Skyreach Centre in 1998, before it changed to its current name during the middle of the 2003–04 NHL season when its naming rights were purchased by the Rexall medicine company, a subsidiary of Katz Group Canada.

The arena was used to host games in the 1981 and 1984 Canada Cup hockey tournaments, including Game 2 of the 1984 finals between Canada and Sweden. In the 1995 World Junior Championships, which were held in various cities and towns throughout Alberta, Edmonton Coliseum was the site of several games, including Canada’s 6–3 victory over Finland on New Year’s Day.

The venue was the site of several Commonwealth Games sports in 1978, and part of Universiade (the World University Games) in 1983. It also hosted the World Wrestling Entertainment 2004 Backlash pay per view. Annual events include the Canadian Finals Rodeo and the Christian Conference, YC Alberta.

Before the 2007/08 season started, the Oilers dressing room was renovated for $3.5 million. The state-of-art room is now wider with a new medical room, lounge, bar, video room, weight room as well as other new facilities. Just after the entrance to the dressing room is a cubicle with 5 replica Stanley Cups in it that has all the names of the past Oilers who won cups with the team. Next to the 5 replicas is an empty space symbolizing that there is always room for another.[2]

[edit] Seating capacity

The official capacity for hockey is currently 16,839, which is slightly less than the 17,100 the arena held before the 2001–02 NHL season. Some media sources[who?] still quote the old capacity even though the Oilers have never announced an attendance above 16,839 since the most recent changes. When it opened, the capacity was slightly more than 15,200, but it was increased to 17,353 after the Oilers joined the NHL by adding an extra tier of seating on the side opposite the pressbox. This was increased to 17,503 in 1984. The arena underwent an extensive renovation in 1994 in which the seating capacity was reduced to make way for fifty-two luxury suites. Fifteen more suites were added in 2001.
