Simmons Bank Arena back in full swing

After a year of event cancellations due to coronavirus, Simmons Bank Arena at 1 Simmons Bank Arena Drive in North Little Rock is rocking again.

On Friday, June 4, 2021, Simmons Bank Arena welcomed event attendees to Mike Epps’s “In Real Life Comedy Tour.” With limited capacity, the venue was able to provide hundreds with much-needed comedy and live entertainment.

“[It] just kind of confirms our feeling that people are feeling better about getting out,” general manager Michael Marion said in an interview with KATV Ch. 7.

The 2021 lineup includes a great variety of entertainment. Families with young children will enjoy Disney on Ice and Blippi the Musical; those who enjoy action-packed entertainment will enjoy Professional Bull Riders and WWE Friday Night Smackdown, and Christian music fans will love TobyMac and Newsboys. Other fun concerts will include Foreigner and Banda MS.

In a typical year, the 28,000-square-foot arena welcomes more than 400,000 event and concert attendees. The arena is still being careful by reducing available seats, separating groups and encouraging (but not requiring) masks, especially for those unvaccinated.

Simmons Bank Arena is conveniently located within walking distance of the Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock. Nearby restaurants and bars include:

While downtown, relax at Argenta Plaza, check out the new murals and even ride the streetcar – all for free!
