About Toyota Stadium
Soccer is one of the fastest-growing sports in the US, and as a result, a number of really fantastic soccer-specific stadiums have sprung up all across the country. One of the first of these, Toyota Stadium, located right outside Dallas, Texas, helped pioneer the spread of professional soccer in America and continues to do so today.
The History of Toyota Stadium
Built to provide space for more than 20,000 adoring fans, Toyota Stadium first opened in 2005. It featured a unique U-shaped design and included a permanent stage incorporated into the north end of the stadium – a feature that’s been controversial despite how often it’s used to host music concerts ever since.
As one of the oldest stadiums built for Major League Soccer, Toyota Stadium has needed some upkeep. The south end of the stadium was completely renovated in 2018, which added a European-style roof capping a new multi-tiered stand that replaced an older set of bleachers, refurbished the box office and locker rooms, and added the National Soccer Hall of Fame as well.

There have also been plenty of music acts that have graced the permanent stage at Toyota Stadium over the years. My Chemical Romance, Metallica, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, KISS, Evanescence, Ed Sheeran, and Imagine Dragons have all played at Toyota Stadium events, and even if the fans have their way and get the permanent stage replaced with more bleachers there’s nothing that will stop this venue from continuing to host excellent music in the future.
