Frank Erwin Center

UT's multipurpose venue for music, sports and everything in between

Since 1977, The Frank Erwin Center has offered Austinites every variety of grand spectacle in their sprawling multipurpose venue. UT sports fans take in the majority of their men's and women's basketball games here, and special guests like the Harlem Globetrotters and WWE make sold-out touring appearances in the center of the in-the-round seating set up. Touring stage productions like Sesame Street Live also grace the theater stage for annual special appearances. But the majority of the time, The Erwin Center features the biggest names in rock, country and pop music, like Lady Gaga and Jay-Z , touring across the country one night at a time.

Located right off I35, traffic is inevitably a nightmare for miles before and after the MLK exit.

Your best bet is to approach from the west side and arrive hours early to grab a bite at one of the nearby eateries south on Red River.
