Sprint Center ranks in America’s top concert venues

Even without a primary tenant, the Sprint Center continues to do well in Kansas City’s downtown. The arena ranked as the #11 concert venue in the nation this year, according to Pollstar.

Since opening in 2007, the arena claims to have contributed nearly $10 million back to the city.
