BankAtlantic Center Ranked Top 16 In U.S.

'The Center of it All' Places 25th Worldwide Among Top 100 Venues

SUNRISE, FL – Trade publication Pollstar announced in its most recent issue that the BankAtlantic Center ranked 16th in the United States, 21st in North America and 25th worldwide among the top 100 venues in total concert ticket sales for 2006. In addition, the Sinatra Theater presented by BankAtlantic (No. 78), also ranked among the top 100 theatre venues worldwide.

"Clearly, based on this recent ranking, the BankAtlantic Center is South Florida's premier entertainment destination as well as an internationally known and respected venue," SSE chief operating officer Michael Yormark said. "As we move forward with an unbelievable schedule of entertainment for 2007, there is no reason to believe we can't crack the Top 10 venues in the United States."

Over the last year, the BankAtlantic Center hosted sold out concerts for Billy Joel, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Barbra Streisand, Rolling Stones as well as spectacular shows like The Who, Mary J. Blige, Guns N' Roses, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The BankAtlantic Center finished ahead of some of the world's most respected entertainment facilities like Placio De Los Deportes in Mexico City (No. 29), the United Center in Chicago (No. 35), General Motors Place in Vancouver (No. 43), and Acer Arena in Austrailia (No. 39). New York's Madison Square Garden and England's Manchester Evening News Arena finished first and second respectively.

SHOOTING FOR THE TOP 10:

The BankAtlantic Center already has a host of spectacular shows lined up for 2007. Some of these anticipated events are Rod Stewart on Jan. 12, Percussion Fusion on Jan. 14, Jamie Foxx with Fantasia on Feb. 2, Smuckers Stars on Ice on Feb. 15, Liza Minelli on Feb. 18, Placido Domingo on March 7. More anticipated shows for the first quarter of 2007 at the BankAtlantic Center are:

Dancing With The Stars (Jan. 24):

"Dancing with the Stars – The Tour" is sponsored by Slim-fast and produced by BBC Worldwide, AEG LIVE and Front Line Management Group. The two hour show will feature a larger-than-life re-creation of the TV show's actual stage with an intimate nightclub style table seating on the floor, allowing fans unparalleled sightlines and access to all of the action. As with the network show, there will be a live orchestra to accompany the dances with popular modern day songs that have become a much loved aspect of the program.

Red Hot Chili Peppers (Jan. 31):

The Red Hot Chili Peppers recently released their ninth studio album Stadium Arcadium in May 2006. The album debuted in the No. 1 spot on the United States charts where it remained for two weeks. Stadium Arcadium features a double disc collection of 28 all new songs. Hip-hop duo Gnarls Barkley will be the opening act.

Justin Timerlake with Special Guest Pink (Feb. 25):

The 34-show North American leg of the worldwide tour will include Grammy Award Winner Pink as the opener. Timberlake, himself, won two Grammy Awards for his debut solo album Justified. Timberlake, his band, and dancers will perform "in the round," bringing the intimate mood of his acclaimed 'Live Listening Sessions' into the arena setting and essentially making every BankAtlantic Center seat a great seat – creating the ultimate multi-media viewing experience.

Nickelback (March 18):

The show is part of the last tour in support of the quadruple platinum album All The Right Reasons. The band's 2003 release, The Long Road, is certified triple platinum, and bore several rock, modern rock, and pop radio hits including "Someday," "Figured You Out" and "Feelin' Way Too Damn Good." The album also earned the band three Grammy nominations, six Radio Music Award nominations, and one American Music Award nomination
