Sanford Center Sees Success After Back-To-Back Concerts
For the first time since the event center’s opening in 2010, Bemidji’s Sanford Center hosted two back-to-back shows with crowds reaching over 2,000 each night.
According to a release from the Sanford Center, post-event numbers from Ticketmaster reports for last Wednesday’s Stone Sour/Halestorm performance, shows 49% of patrons came from the Twin Cities areas, with 25% of sales coming from Beltrami County. Thursday’ show with Lee Brice brought in 35% of fans from Beltrami County with 65% of fans coming to Bemidji from all over the United States and Canada.
The calculated economic impact created by these two events last week is over half a million dollars as determined by hotel attendees, average daily spending and number of concert goers.
