On January 31, 2010, WWE held its 23rd annual Royal Rumble Event at Philips Arena. The marquee event, the Royal Rumble Match, featured a total of 30 wrestlers from Raw, SmackDown and ECW brands. In this year’s match, Edge claimed victory by outlasting all other challengers in his surprise return to competition. As the winner, Edge earned the right to compete for a world title at Wrestlemania XXVI.

WWE returns to Philips Arena later this year with two exciting events: WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 2nd and Monday Night Raw on Monday, April 4th. We hope to see you there!

This Week in History


Back on January 29, 2000, Atlanta’s hometown favorite, TLC, took the stage at Philips Arena for the final stop on their “FanMail Tour”. TLC belted out multiple #1 hits, including Waterfalls, Unpretty and concluded with the extremely popular, No Scrubs. As part of their final show, T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli were joined on stage by special guest Goodie Mob to perform “What it Ain’t”.

TLC received incredible support from their hometown fans, including Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell. He awarded each member a key to the city and named the day of the concert “TLC Day”.

This Week in History

This week in history Philips Arena welcomed Celine Dion’s Taking Chances Tour. Celine graced the stage at Philips Arena on Saturday, January 17, 2009. This tour was significant as it marked Celine’s return after performing her “A New Day…” show in Las Vegas for five years. The tour was said to be the second highest grossing tours of all time by a solo artist.

Celine performed some of her old hits as well as new songs from her “Taking Chances” album which she released in November 2007. The show was two hours, broken into four segments – soul, rock, Middle-Eastern, and fashion-victim. The crowd was treated to an inspiring performance including unique elements of videos, dancing, and innovating lighting.
