Bridgestone Arena Sets Record Attendance in December
Nashville Tenn. (December 29, 2010) – The month of December has been record setting for Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, with a building-high 334,917 guests walking through the doors for 22 separate events. Seven Nashville Predators home games and 15 concerts – including nine sold out Garth Brooks performances – created the most attended month in the history of Bridgestone Arena.

“This month has been outstanding,” Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena COO/President Sean Henry said. “The Predators had great attendance all month long, ending with two consecutive sellouts, Bridgestone Arena boasted an incredible nine sold out Garth Brooks concerts and now we are finishing strong with Usher and Zac Brown Band sellouts. These great events have really created a buzz in Bridgestone Arena and all this activity, especially around the holidays, has been really positive for not only us but also Downtown Nashville businesses.

“As our market continues to grow, and with more people coming out to events than ever before, the best way for fans to make sure they never miss an exciting evening of live entertainment – be it hockey, basketball or a concert – is to become Bridgestone Arena season ticketholder.”
