In Pollstar Magazine’s recently released mid-year report, Mohegan Sun comes in ranking 11th for all Arenas in the U.S., regardless of size. Mohegan Sun Arena currently sits ahead of other big music venue forces such as The Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ and Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. All of whom have capacities over 18,000.
“It’s quite an accomplishment and one that so many people here at Mohegan Sun deserve to celebrate. A ton of hard work goes into making Mohegan Sun Arena one of the most popular and attractive entertainment venues in the world. To continue to be in the company of places like the Sprint Center, Wells Fargo Center and Madison Square Garden feels tremendous, especially when you factor in how much larger some of these places are.” said Tom Cantone, Senior Vice President of Sports & Entertainment for Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority.
Mohegan Sun Arena continues to build off of an amazing 2013 where Prince rounded out the concert calendar with three consecutive highly crowd pleasing shows in late December. The venue also was named “Best Arena of the Year” at the 2013 G2E Global Gaming Conference’s Casino Entertainment Awards as well as”Casino of the Year” for 2013, by the Academy of Country Music.
So, congratulations, Mohegan Sun. Well deserved!
That’s all for now.
