The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, commonly known as Nassau Coliseum (or simply The Coliseum), is a multi-purpose indoor arena in Uniondale, New York, on Long Island. The Coliseum is 19 miles (30 km) from New York City. It is home to the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League and the New York Dragons of the Arena Football League.

Opened in 1972, the Coliseum occupies 63 acres (255,000 m²) of Mitchel Field, site of a former Army and Air Force base. The facility is located in an unincorporated area of the Town of Hempstead, within the Uniondale 11553 Zip Code.

The Coliseum is also used for concerts, large exhibitions and shows of various kinds, as well as trade shows (44,000 square feet at the main arena, 60,000 at the Expo Center). Long Island native Billy Joel is one of the Coliseum’s most prolific tenants, holding multiple shows at his hometown arena over the course of his tours. Billy Joel has a “retired number” banner, along with those of Islander greats, hanging from the rafters to commemorate his many Coliseum sellouts. New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen also played a memorable New Year’s Eve concert at The Coliseum in 1980. Certain songs from the concert were used on his 1986 live album Live/1975-85. Both Phish and the Grateful Dead frequently played here and both have live albums recorded at Nassau Coliseum: the Grateful Dead (Go to Nassau), Phish (4-2-98, 4-3-98, 2-28-03 of the Live Phish Series).
