Sprint Center named one of 2009’s best venues

Pollstar named Kansas City’s Sprint Center as one of 2009’s best concert venues. The arena was number five in the U.S., and number 16 in the world. Nice going: for a relatively new venue (the Sprint Center opened in October of 2007), this is quite an honor.

As anyone who’s attended a concert at the Sprint Center can attest, it’s a pretty nice venue. Good sound, nice sight lines, and the Quik Trip with the dollar fountain drinks is a nice touch for the budget-conscious, as well.

According to Pollstar:

• Nine of the top 10 North American concert tours have visited or are scheduled to visit Sprint Center in 2010.

• Sprint Center hosted (2009) or will host (in 2010) 18 of the top 20 North American tours including Elton John and Billy Joel, Britney Spears, AC/DC, Kenny Chesney, Jonas Brothers, Dave Matthews Band and Fleetwood Mac.

• The Eagles concert on March 28, 2009, was the arena’s highest grossing one-event concert to date.

Upcoming events at the venue include WWE’s Smackdown, Taylor Swift, and AC/DC, as well as the NCAA women’s basketball finals.
