“Venues Today” reported Ford Center as sixth top stop in the world for medium capacity venues. This means all reported numbers by medium venues (10,001 – 15,000 capacity) in the world were turned in and Evansville, IN’s own Ford Center came in number six behind MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas who claimed the number one spot.
This report was pulled between August 16 and September 15. During that time, Ford Center hosted Alan Jackson and Kid Rock bringing almost 15,000 patrons to downtown Evansville. Not only did Evansville claim the number six spot, but also claimed the 8th and 10th spot for gross sales in the medium capacity venues category.
“Ford Center continues to receive support from our tri-state area and claiming a spot in the top 10 is a great accomplishment for the city of Evansville, VenuWorks and Ford Center,” stated Executive Director, Scott Schoenike. “Being recognized on three different accomplishments in the same month is quite the achievement, and knowing we were only 5 spots behind MGM in Las Vegas really shows this community and this industry Ford Center is a venue to be recognized.”
