THE CYNTHIA WOODS MITCHELL PAVILION RANKS NO. 2 IN THE WORLD FOR CONCERT TICKET SALES

According to the upcoming July 21, 2008, edition of Pollstar magazine, the concert industry’s leading trade publication, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion ranked second in its listing of top 50 amphitheatres in the world based on the number of tickets sold during the first six months of 2008. The Pavilion’s ticket sales totaled 112,080 for shows played between Jan. 1 and June 30, 2008.

So far this season, The Pavilion has had five sold-out concerts (15,000+), including Jimmy Buffett April 21, Buzzfest XXI April 26, Kanye West May 2, Roger Waters May 4 and Radiohead May 17. Other concerts with attendance over 10,000 include the Police May 20 and Iron Maiden May 22.

“We have had an incredible year so far in 2008. The quality and variety of shows we have presented has been fantastic,” said Jerry MacDonald, president and CEO of The Pavilion. “I attribute the strong showing to the vibrant Houston market and our booking partnership with Live Nation. Our facility is a wonderful way to experience concerts and our location is one of the keys to our success.”

The next few months include performances by Kid Rock & Lynyrd Skynyrd Aug. 9, Dave Matthews Band Aug. 15, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Aug. 29, Maroon 5 & Counting Crows Sept. 5, Toby Keith Sept. 6, Santana Sept 20, 3 Doors Down Sept. 21 and more. There also are several Houston Symphony dates and one Houston Ballet performance.
