Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Pollstar Magazine has named the KFC Yum! Center as the eighth largest venue in the nation (and 22nd largest in the world) for ticket sales, according to a news release from the center.

The center sold over 100,000 tickets this quarter, the release states.

The report does not include U of L sporting events or the NCAA Division I Men's Regional Tournament games hosted at the venue during the first quarter.

"The first quarter of 2016 brought several huge events to the KFC Yum! Center, including the busiest week in the arena's history when the venue hosted six events in seven days, including megastars Blake Shelton and Bruce Springsteen," said Dennis Petrullo, General Manager of the KFC! Yum Center. "Top-notch talent continues to make the KFC Yum! Center a stop on their tours because not only do fans from Louisville and surrounding cities continue to pack the house, but promoters know that they expect the staff at the KFC Yum! Center to execute every aspect of the show's production, ticketing and marketing needs with excellence."
