TaxSlayer ranks 5th in ticket sales

    The TaxSlayer Center in Moline has been named one of the top arenas in the U.S. in ticket sales for the year.

    The TaxSlayer ranks fifth in the nation in sales for arenas under 12,000 seats for 2021, according to Pollstar Magazine’s year-end analysis report.

    The Quad Cities arena sold 40,771 tickets that grossed about $2.3 million after reopening in July. The year was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “Thank you to all our partners in the live entertainment industry for working with us to provide entertainment for the Quad City community as we emerged from a 16-month shutdown this past summer,” TaxSlayer Center Executive Director Scott Mullen said in a news release issued Tuesday.

    “It’s great to see all the upgrades we completed during that downtime contributing to provide a safer experience for all our acts and guests as we work our way back to normalcy in the new year,” he added. 

    Some of the acts scheduled for 2022 include:

    • Harlem Globetrotters: Jan. 1.
    • Hoosier Arenacross Nationals: Jan. 21-22
    • JoJo Siwa: Feb. 4.
