CLEVELAND-- Quicken Loans Arena will be back open next week, starting with the Justin Timberlake concert.

The Q was closed for the summer as part of the two-year renovation project.

It'll be a busy first month for the 25-year-old arena.

•Kevin Hart, Oct. 4
•Monsters hockey, Oct. 5, 6, 11, and 13

There are a few changes that fans need to know. The main box office temporarily moved inside the northwest Ceremonial Entrance. The team shop will reopen on Oct. 2.


Huron Road is reduced to two lanes during non-event times. During events, both lanes will convert to one-way directional traffic.

Prior to events, beginning at the Ontario Street/Huron Road intersection, the two lanes will only enter onto Huron Road traveling eastbound towards the Gateway East Garage.

After every event, the two lanes will be dedicated to westbound traffic only.


Limited parking is available in the Gateway East Garage for Cavs and Monsters games, and other arena events.
