Ford Center a Best New Major Concert Venue Nominee

Ford Center/Facebook

On November 4th, I had the great pleasure of broadcasting from the Ford Center during its first anniversary celebration. It was my first opportunity to go inside the arena, and, as many of you already know, it is amazing.

So, it came as no surprise to yours truly when it was announced that the Ford Center has been nominated for a 2012 Concert Industry Award as the Best New Major Concert Venue by Pollstar Magazine.

The Ford Center has been such a boon to Evansville and the tri-state area, hosting more than 140 events that have included Evansville IceMen hockey regular and post-season games, University of Evansville men’s and women’s regular and post-season games, as well as concerts and family events.

A veritable recording industry Who’s Who has graced a Ford Center stage at one time or another during the last year. Huge names like Bob Seger, Elton John, Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, James Taylor, and Brad Paisley. And Luke Bryan will be there January 17th!

Plus, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the Harlem Globetrotters, Jeff Dunham, Disney on Ice, Cirque du Soleil: Quidam, and WWE Smackdown have all entertained Ford Center audiences.

Congratulations to executive director Scott Schoenike and the Ford Center team!

The best is yet to come!
