In 2009, the indigenous Kumeyaay Indians acquired naming rights leading to the current name of the facility Viejas Arenas (Viejas meaning old). The arena is situated on the site that was the Aztec Bowl, The structure was built directly into a canyon and almost encloses what once was the Aztec Bowl. That stadium included a 1963 graduation address by President John F. Kennedy, an event commemorated by a boulder that is an official California landmark. Many leading musicians have performed at this arena from Drake to Fleetwood Mac. Past performers include Billy Joel, Janet Jackson, and Eric Clapton, as well as many more. The arena has also hosted several first and second rounds in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.
