Wells Fargo Center
is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is the home of the Philadelphia Flyers, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Philadelphia Wings of the NLL, and the Philadelphia Soul of the AFL. The arena was completed in 1996 to replace the venerable Spectrum as the home of the Flyers, 76ers and Wings. Built on the site of John F. Kennedy Stadium, Wells Fargo Center sits at the southwest corner of the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, which includes Lincoln Financial Field and Citizens Bank Park.
On June 9, 2010, the Center set the record for the highest attendance for an indoor hockey game in the state of Pennsylvania (20,327) when the Flyers lost Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Chicago Blackhawks. The Center also set a record for the highest attendances for a college basketball game in the state of Pennsylvania on February 13, 2006, when Villanova University played and defeated the #1 ranked University of Connecticut before 20,859.
On December 6, 2002, the band Guns N’ Roses was scheduled to perform there on their Chinese Democracy Tour. The opening bands CKY and Mixmaster Mike went on to perform as usual, but Guns N’ Roses never showed up which started a riot in the arena that caused thousands of dollars in damage. No reason was ever given for Guns N’ Roses not appearing.In 2006, Billy Joel set a Complex record for most sellouts at the Center, 17. Only The Grateful Dead have sold out more shows at the Complex, 53, all at the now-closed Spectrum.
In addition, hanging from the rafters of the Wells Fargo Center are two banners in the orange and black colors of the Flyers honoring both Billy Joel’s 48 Philadelphia sellouts and Bruce Springsteen’s 51 Philadelphia sellouts.
