The original colosseum provided entertainment for the common people of Roman society by presenting them with spectacles and events as a temporary escape from day-to-day life. This concept has been revived in the 20th century. Modern-day stadiums and civic centers provide an arena for entertainment ranging from concerts to professional sporting events.
