4 Connecticut Concert Halls Rank Among Industry’s Best 2021
We love our live music here in Connecticut. According to Poll star, the leading trade publication for the concert industry, Connecticut is home to 5 sites that rank among the best in the world for ticket sales in different categories of the concert industry.
Pollstar just released their 2021 year-end show, which lists the best tours, promoters, arenas, theaters, clubs, stadiums, amphitheater concerts and ticket sales, among many other categories, related to the entertainment industry.
While 2020 has been a catastrophic loss for the live music industry as a whole, 2021 has been tremendous for Connecticut. With the state’s low coronavirus count throughout the summer, we were fortunate that many artists stopped by here. We also attended the opening of the beautiful Hartford Healthcare Amphitheater in Bridgeport, and the nationally broadcast Farm Aid Festival was hosted by Hartford’s Xfinity Theater.
In the category of the 200 best selling tickets in the world for arenas, the beautiful Mohegan Sun Arena placed 11th on the list, with sales of 185,459 tickets and $ 14,609,430 in gross sales. of tickets. Mohegan Sun sold more tickets in 2021 than any venues in the northeastern United States except Madison Square Garden, which ranked No. 2 on Pollstar’s list.
Hartford’s Xfinity Theater performed well in the Top 100 Selling Amphitheater Ticket category in the world, ranking 40th, with 95,754 tickets sold, for a gross amount of $ 4,915,856.
The Premier Theater at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., Landed 28th on Pollstar’s list of the 200 best-selling tickets in the world, selling 44,044 tickets for a gross amount of $ 6,976,076.
New Haven’s College Street Music Hall landed 32nd in global ticket sales on Pollstar’s Top 200 Club list, with 20,540 tickets sold, grossing $ 785,986.
