Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Ranks Among Top 30 Arenas Worldwide for Entertainment Ticket Sales in Pollstar Magazine’s 2021 Year-End Report
Pollstar, the concert industry’s leading trade publication, ranked Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse No. 27 in its list of the top 200 arena venues worldwide for entertainment ticket sales in its year-end analysis report for 2021. The ranking jumps Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse 18 positions from the 2020 report, which ranked the venue No. 45 worldwide.
The year-end report, which covers the global concert business (and does not include ticket sales from the venue’s sporting events), spans mid-November 2020 through mid-November 2021. Due to a halt in hosting large events that began as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the first major ticketed event at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse since March 2020 did not occur until July 23, 2021 when the FieldHouse hosted WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
Following WWE, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse’s strong return to major live events in 2021 also included some of the biggest names in music and entertainment, hosting eight touring acts that made Pollstar’s Top 100 Worldwide Tours measured by gross revenue – Harry Styles, Eric Church, Sebastian Maniscalco, Genesis, Dave Chappelle, Bert Kreischer, Kane Brown and Andrea Boccelli, as well as Z107.9’s Summer Jam, which ranked No. 15 in Pollstar’s Top 20 Worldwide Festival Grosses.
