Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Ranks #11 In Terms Of U.S. Concert Ticket Sales

However, there was a major dip in the number of tickets sold last year due to the extended run of the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, along with Republican National Convention. According to the CEO of Quicken Loans arena and Cavaliers, Len Komoroski, the entire credit of being able to attract popular artists goes to the successful relationship of the organization with various promoters, which include Messina Touring Group, AEG, and Live Nation. This has helped the arena to raise its head positively in the stiff competition.

It is usually seen that Northeast Ohio supports these musical tours quite strongly and so does Cleveland. These musical shows create a major impact, which results in thousands of fans rushing to the concert to from different regions. The entire management team of Quicken Loans arena plans to keep the popularity of the arena rising by attracting different concerts and various other events. All this will be possible once the renovation plan of the arena gets completed. The team has decided to put in $140 million to renovate the entire arena and make it more modern and guest friendly. This $140 million also includes $88 million public money.

However, the organization has refused to comment anything on the subject, since it also relates to the current successes of the arena. However, the team has said that the renovation plan was being discussed for a long time in order to allow the arena to compete with its newer and flashier competitors properly. These venues include Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

Once the renovation plan gets into action and the arena gets a newer and flashier look, it will surely rise up the popularity chart at a great speed. Different people from different parts of the U.S. will visit Cleveland to witness various musical concerts and this will also result in higher tourist visits to the town. For the sake of the arena’s future, it is always better that the renovation plan takes effect fast. This will help the Quicken Loans Arena rise up and compete with some of the best arenas in the U.S.
