Carolina Theatre Remains In Pollstar Top 100
Have you ever had the feeling you were watching the best performing artists in one of the top venues in the world while sitting in Downtown Durham? If you've been to the Carolina Theatre lately, you have done just that.
Concert industry trade publication Pollstar recently slotted the Carolina Theatre at No. 90 among all theatres worldwide in its mid-year rankings for 2014. Theatre CEO Bob Nocek tweeted out the good news late on Friday afternoon. The Carolina made the list in 2012 and 2013, as well.
The Theatre has had plenty of good news to share lately. In April, Durham City Council approved a 10-year contract renewal for Carolina Theatre of Durham Inc. to continue operating the city-owned venue, and the Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau said the venue made an economic impact of $14 million on the city in 2012-13.
Also, the end of the 2013-14 season saw a packed Fletcher Hall host four sold-out shows of comedian Aziz Ansari, as well as wonderful performances from Rosanne Cash, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Art Garfunkel and more.
The impressive schedule for the 2014-15 season hints that more great things are ahead for the Carolina Theatre. We can't wait to see you again soon.
