Nashville, Tenn. – Bridgestone Arena ranks ninth in the United States and 31st in the world for concert attendance, according to international trade publication Pollstar’s Third Quarter Ticket Sales report. This is Bridgestone Arena’s second consecutive year in the Top 10 of Pollstar’s Third Quarter ticket sales rankings.

“The community’s response to this year’s events has been fantastic” Bridgestone Arena VP of Booking David Kells said. “We’ve been fortunate to fill Bridgestone Arena with something for everyone, starting the year with Drake and Jason Aldean and continuing with Winter Jam, Big Time Rush, Eric Church, James Taylor, Barry Manilow and Rod Stewart, with recent shows Jason Mraz and Carrie Underwood. The support of the Nashville music community, our promoter partners, the managers, performers and our entire organization make it possible for us continue this success and bring world-class entertainment to Nashville.”
