Yankee Stadium has sat comfortably at the No. 3 position for the past two weeks, but with the NBA Finals over with after a Miami Heat win, the top position in TicketNews’ exclusive venue rankings now belongs to the Bronx Bombers.
After ending the second Subway Series at Citi Field on June 24, the Yankees returned home for a full week homestand. First up the Yanks took on the Cleveland Indians and pulled off a sweep. Going into the weekend the Chicago White Sox visited the Bronx and split the series 2-2.
The Yankees return home after the All-Star break on July 13 hosting a three-game series versus the Los Angeles Angeles. The stadium will also be hosting its first soccer game on July 22 with Paris Saint-Germain taking on Chelsea FC. Tickets to the soccer game are being sold in a bundle with the second matchup between Real Madrid and AC Milan which is set to take place on August 8.
Fenway Park also saw a jump in the rankings moving from the No. 6 spot up to the No. 3 position for the week ending July 1. The Boston Red Sox hosted a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays where they took home two wins. The Red Sox return home this weekend to take on the Yankees in four games — the first game of Saturday’s double header is a result of the April 22 game that was postponed due to heavy rain. Yankees-Red Sox games are always in high demand and will surely help Fenway Park remain high on the venue rankings next week as well.
Holding on to the second place position for the third week in a row is the Eugene O’Neill Theatre which hosts the Broadway hit “Book of Mormon” which shows no sign of losing steam.
Surging up the rankings from the No. 19 position last week to No. 6 is the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The venue hosted electric dance music DJ Avicii, country music star Alan Jackson, and a two night show from the indie rock band The Avett Brothers to close out the month of June. Mumford and Sons just announced their 2012 U.S. Summer Tour which originally had one stop in late August at Red Rocks Amphitheatre but with tickets selling out in a day the band added a second date for fans. A check of the Mumford and Sons website shows that the second date has officially sold out as well.
