Oracle Arena (Oakland, CA) Information

The Oracle Arena was originally constructed as the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena - which also includes the outdoor stadium O.co Coliseum - and was built in 1966 for $25 million. The arena’s first-ever tenants were the California Seals – an old Western Hockey League team - and the Golden State Warriors have played games at the Oracle Arena since 1971.

In 1996, it was decided that because the Oracle was one of the smallest arenas in the league, offering up a little over 15,000 seats, it was time for a serious renovation. While many contingencies were pushing for a newly-built structure - perhaps even in San Jose or San Francisco - it was decided that the $121 million renovation would simply build new seating within the old footprint.

Currently, the Oracle Arena has a seating capacity of 19,596 adoring fans and spectators. It is also still considered the oldest NBA arena still in use. The West Regional 2006 NCAA Men’s Division Basketball Tournament was held at Oracle Arena as well as the 2000 NBA All-Star Game.

Concerts at The Oracle Arena have included a 1970 performance by Credence Clearwater Revival, which was filmed and released as the album called “The Concert”. The Grateful Dead also recorded their 1992 album, Dick’s Pick’s Volume 27 at the Oracle as well as a Duran Duran film in 1984.

Oracle Arena (Oakland, CA) User Reviews

Average rating:
Oracle is huge, organized, and unforgettable
Alaina M. Mar 26, 2013
I visited the Oracle in Oakland, CA this past Halloween for Spookfest. The atmosphere was upbeat and the majority of concert-goers were college-aged. Parking was reasonable at $35, and well worth it, as you are very close to the arena and many concert-goers were playing music and getting ready for the show at their cars, so it was a fun start to the evening. The lines were fast and the staff was very friendly and pleasant, even stopping us to snap a photograph with us in our costumes. The Oracle arena itself is gigantic. There was a main stage with a standing room in front, and stadium seating surrounding. I was in the stadium seating, and although the view of the DJ was not the best, the set itself was breath-taking. The lights, smoke, fog, lasers, and music were absolutely incredible. There were acrobats and dancers performing with fire on stage while the DJs played. The security was attentive, the show was safe, and it was overall a very fun experience. The only downside would be the sheer amount of people in the arena; it was completely packed, but it was tolerable because of the Oracle's gigantic size. If you can afford a ticket, I'd highly recommend attending a show, concert, or game at the Oracle arena. I will definitely be back for the next festival.
The Oracle is a favorite, but seating is tricky
Grace H. Mar 5, 2013
Because the Oracle is only sometimes a concert venue and otherwise a sports arena, it is really a hit or a miss with concert seating. I've been to many concerts at the Oracle when my view has been perfect and the acoustics have been wonderful. But I have been to a few too many where I have spent a fortune on "Great Seats" which turned out to have very limited viewing of the star, even though they were so "close" to the stage.
