UNCASVILLE, CT (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Mohegan Sun Arena has been named as one of the top five grossing venues for its size in 2010 by Venues Today Magazine, beating out iconic venues such as the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
This year, the Mohegan Sun has hosted numerous concerts by top touring artists, including Brad Paisley, with his first post CMA appearance, Taylor Swift, Sting, Jay-Z and James Taylor & Carol King. According to data in TourIntel, concerts at the Mohegan Sun Arena during the time period sold almost 90% of available seats, on average.
The Venues Today listing continues a trend; last year, the Mohegan Sun Arena was recognized by Billboard Magazine in their year-end rankings as the 4th best venue of its size in the world and achieved number 5 in the same category for the past decade.
"This new ranking along with Billboard Magazine's ranking have reinforced our place among the best venues in the world today. But more importantly, is a solid endorsement for our brand and much deserved recognition for all our talented team members," said Tom Cantone, the Mohegan Sun's vice president of sports & entertainment. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
