CFG Bank Arena on Target to Present 120 Shows in its First Year of Operation, Managers Say

Baltimore’s refurbished CFG Bank Arena is on target to present 120 concerts and other events in its first year of operation, or about one show every three days.

Tickets for the first concert, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, sold out in 20 minutes. Others have sold out, too.

And that’s before most Baltimoreans have been inside the building to see the results of a $200-250 million renovation designed to turn it into a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment venue, said Randi Bernstein, senior vice president of Oak View Group (OVG), the Los Angeles-based organization that now manages the 14,000-seat venue at 201 West Baltimore Street, formerly known as the Royal Farms Arena.
