The venue opened in 1988 as the Coca-Cola Starplex Amphitheatre. After Coca-Cola's naming rights expired in 1998, the venue was known simply as Starplex Amphitheatre. In 2000, naming rights to the amphitheatre were sold to the Smirnoff vodka company as a result of a corporate sponsorship agreement with The House of Blues which currently operates the venue. The House of Blues is owned by Live Nation, a publicly traded live events company based in Beverly Hills, California.

The center was previously called Smirnoff Music Center. Naming rights were awarded again in January 2008 and its current name is Center[1].
