Stellar Month of Programming for Orlando Venues
ORLANDO, FLORIDA [November 12, 2013] Orlando Venues is closing out the year with a very busy schedule – recently completing a successful run of 21 different events in a two-week stretch. In that time frame, the Amway Center presented three Orlando Magic games, including the season home opener on November 1, three Orlando Solar Bears games, Michael Bublé, Nine Inch Nails and WWE Monday Night Raw. Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre hosted two performances of Orlando Philharmonic’s The Barber of Seville and eight performances of Broadway’s The Book of Mormon.
This past week, Orlando Venues presented another exceptional week of programming with additional performances of The Book of Mormon, Orlando Magic and Orlando Solar Bears’ games, Josh Groban and the third consecutive engagement of Electric Daisy Carnival, a two-day festival held at Tinker Field. On Sunday, immediately following Electric Daisy Carnival, the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium proudly hosted an exhibition soccer match between the U.S. Women’s National Team and Brazil, which is the first U.S. Women’s National Team match hosted here since 1999. The U.S. Women’s National Team was victorious with a 4-1 win over Brazil.
Over the two week period, approximately 116,620* patrons visited and generated over $650,000+ in concession sales at the Amway Center and Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre.
“For Orlando to host world-class events like U.S. Women’s Soccer, Electric Daisy Carnival, Josh Groban, The Book of Mormon, NBA Basketball and ECHL hockey all within a the span of two weeks is a great source of motivation for the city’s community venues vision, and we couldn’t be prouder,” said Allen Johnson, executive director of Orlando Venues. “These diverse events have truly showcased the potential of our city’s venues, and we are looking forward to the new opportunities that a reconstructed Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium and the new soccer stadium will bring to our community and Central Florida.”
