Also named one of top concert venues in the world
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 25, 2013) — The KFC Yum Center recently was ranked as one of the country’s Top 10 arenas by Rolling Stone magazine. This achievement comes just two months after being recognized by venue industry publication, Pollstar magazine as one of the top concert venues in the world.
Rolling Stone, the consumer and music industry go-to source for entertainment news, conducted and released a poll taken by 26 “insiders and musicians” – from top managers to Miranda Lambert – and created a list of what they voted as the nation’s “coolest” arenas and stadiums. The KFC Yum Center is ranked seventh on the list that includes some of the nation’s most iconic concert venues.
“We are thrilled to have been recognized by the artists, tour managers and promoters that we work with to bring top entertainment acts to Louisville,” said Dennis Petrullo, general manager of the Yum Center. “Our team is deeply committed to ensuring that we not only provide great experiences for our guests, but also that the artists who come here want to come back.”
AEG, the leading sports, entertainment and venue operator in the world, manages three of the six arenas that are included on Rolling Stone’s “Venues that Rock” list, including the KFC Yum Center, STAPLES Center and Barclays Center. The full list can be viewed here.
