Scottrade Center

1401 Clark Ave. St. Louis, MO 63103 | St. Louis - Downtown | 314-241-1888

Location Description:

During the frigid winter months, this 20,000-seat arena is the Blues' home sweet home. But every now and again, the ice makes way for monumental showstoppers with jaw-dropping stage set-ups (think Springsteen, Lady Gaga or Nine Inch Nails, and yes, even The Bieber). Concertgoers looking for the VIP experience can rack up seats in 91 suites, 1,700 club seats and seven party rooms.
