John Paul Jones Arena, opening for the 2006-2007 NCAA Division I basketball season, is located at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. It has seating for 15,219 fans, a dramatic change from the relatively tiny capacity of 8,457 at Virginia's previous facility, University Hall. The design features columns on the outside to tie in the design with Scott Stadium, UVa's football facility. This style is known as Jeffersonian architecture, reminiscent of the many buildings designed by Thomas Jefferson on UVa's grounds and nearby.
The arena plays host to not only basketball games, but a wide variety of concerts, performances, and other events; for example, its opening season in 2006 includes events such as the Dave Matthews Band, James Taylor, Brad Paisley, Eric Clapton, Cirque du Soleil, Larry the Cable Guy, The Wiggles, Disney on Ice and WWE Monday Night Raw. Other shows are planned for 2007, including Red Hot Chili Peppers and Blue Man Group. In addition to this, the arena has office space for the UVa athletic department, twin practice facilities for both basketball teams and an extensive sports medicine facility.
The arena's first event was Cirque du Soleil's Delirium on Tuesday, August 1, 2006, but the official Grand Opening event was a two-night tour-ending stand by Charlottesville natives Dave Matthews Band, September 22-23, 2006. An "open house" event for the local community was conducted on July 22, 2006.
The John Paul Jones Arena is named in honor of the father of Paul Tudor Jones, a commodity trader and Virginia alumnus who donated $35 million for the construction of the arena. Paul Tudor Jones earned a B.A. in Economics from the University in 1976. His father, John Paul "Jack" Jones, is a 1948 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law.
