This Pollstar list is pure nonsense. For instance, at the Staples Center, ticket sales for Laker games alone are almost 1 million (19K tickets * 50 games). Then add ticket sales for 41 Clippers games and 35 Kings games. And then start adding ticket sales for all the A-list acts that play there.

The BOK center can go take a flying leap. Since "The Joint" at the hard rock opened and I've seen the first two opening acts, I'll never go anywhere else to see a concert. There are no such thing as "nose bleed" seats there, the sound is about the best I've ever heard in any venue (loud and absolutely 100% crystal clear), and the overall comfort and atmosphere is second to none. You dont have to pay to park or walk ten miles to get there after you park. The BOK blows goats! The Joint rocks!!

the amount of commas you use is pure nonsense, for instance, in this sentence, i've used more commas, then you. those commas alone, are over, a million commas.then you, start adding, up all of these, commas, and I look, like I went,to the same school, for morons, that you did.

My blood isnt red enough to work there numnuts. I dont require to be paid to say something positive about something I did or somewhere I went. I've been to just about every venue in Oklahoma, and this is the only one that has ever TRUELY impressed me, my family, and friends.

That new amphitheater part has only been open for what? Like two or three weeks? Im sure theres going to be some very serious competition in the future. The natives have more money to entertain than BOK does.

This is so stupid. Good for Tulsa, they have at least one thing to brag about. While other real cities were not laying off cops, adding quality jobs, adding and repairing their streets, focusing on schools/education etc. a group of elitists got this idea onto the ballot and shoved it down the throats of Tulsans. What has it REALLY done for the city? It has not increased tax revenues enough to help out the city and its employees. It has not added quality jobs. Tulsa has always been and always be regressive.
