Gexa Energy Pavilion (originally Coca-Cola Starplex Amphitheatre) is the major outdoor amphitheatre located in Fair Park, Dallas, Texas. 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 were sold to the Smirnoff vodka company, as a result of a corporate sponsorship agreement with The House of Blues. The center was then called Smirnoff Music Centre. The name changed again in January 2008 when naming rights were awarded to Center.[1] It was renamed in 2011 to Gexa Energy Pavilion.[2]

The venue is operated by Live Nation Concerts, an entity of Live Nation Entertainment.
