INTRUST Bank Arena Ranked as 39th Busiest Arena in the U.S. Through Third Quarter

The SMG-managed INTRUST Bank Arena finished as the 39th busiest arena in the United States and 81st in the world in Pollstar Magazine’s 2018 Third Quarter Top 200 Arena Venues Rankings. Rankings are based on tickets sold worldwide for shows played between 1/1/18 and 9/30/18. INTRUST Bank Arena was also the fourth highest ranked arena in the continental United States managed by SMG, the Philadelphia-based venue operator that manages more than 230 facilities, nearly 70 arenas and over 1.75 million seats worldwide. The totals do not include tenant sport team ticket counts, some family shows, or SMG-produced special events. Pollstar is a weekly trade publication covering the worldwide concert industry.

Additionally, INTRUST Bank Arena hosted 10 of the Top 100 Tours through the third quarter, including Disney On Ice, Avenged Sevenfold, P!nk, Imagine Dragons, Journey & Def Leppard, Kevin Hart, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Winter Jam, The Harlem Globetrotters and James Taylor.

“We hosted a great lineup of acts throughout the third quarter, including a sold out Imagine Dragons show, a mega co-headlining tour with Journey & Def Leppard and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s unforgettable farewell tour,” said A.J. Boleski, SMG General Manager. “We’re looking forward to finishing the year out strong and continuing to announce shows that will play INTRUST Bank Arena in 2019.”
