Hp Pavilion Tickets
The construction of the HP Pavilion however wasnít without its issues. It was scheduled to open in 1992 but during the construction it was discovered that the building wasnít suitable to hold NHL games and was primarily designed for community events. The major problem was that it didnít have a press box and luxury suites so a major redesign of the structure was done to take it up to NHL standards. That took another year and the arena opened as the San Jose Arena. The naming rights were sold to Compaq in 2001 so the arena became Compaq Center but when HP bought Compaq in 2002 the name was changed to HP Pavilion after its computer models the Pavilion series. The arena went through substantial upgrade in 2007 which included installation of a new video LED display system centrally hung from the roof and a new state of the art sound system. Another luxury suite was also constructed along with a new video control room. The HP Pavilion is home to San Jose SaberCats of AFL too but the Sharks are the main tenants. The arena has held various events like concerts, WWE shows, tennis tournaments, corporate and community functions etc and holds about one hundred and ninety events every year.
HP Pavilion was built by the fans, for the fans of San Jose through sheer persistence and hard work and that gives it a special place among arenas everywhere. HP Pavilion tickets are made available before an event is scheduled to be held there and itís an experience worth having in one of the greatest and most famous arenas in the world.
