Wachovia Complex ranks as 2nd best grossing venues for first half of 2009

The Wachovia Complex ranked fifth in the world and second in the US for highest grossing facilities for the first six months of 2009, according to Venues Today.

The Complex, which is comprised of the 21,000-seat WachoviaCenter and the soon-to-close 19,000-seat Wachovia Spectrum, hosted a combined 66 events, grossing $27,117,507 and drawing 514,551 patrons.

In the U.S., the Wachovia Complex was second to New York's Madison Square Garden which hosted 54 events, grossing $34,382,025 and drawing 583,879 patrons during the same time frame.

Venues Today compiled these numbers for world-wide arenas with at least 15,001 seats or more. The O2 Arena in London finished first in the world, followed by the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario; MSG; AcerArena in Sydney, Australia; Wachovia Complex; the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, FL; Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA; Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA; Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV; and Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta.
