The Rolling Stones were the first band to play a concert at the stadium.

Madonna's concert in 2006 became the biggest concert in Horsens history with 85,232 fans in attendance. Recent concerts at the ground have included AC/DC in 2010 on the Black Ice World Tour, U2 in 2010 on the 360 Tour, Bon Jovi as part of the 2011 European leg of The Circle Tour and One Direction on 16 June 2015 during their On the Road Again Tour.

In 2015 the Arena became the third venue to host the Speedway Grand Prix of Denmark.
