Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall Grossed About 1.5 Billion Dollars Combined This Decade
The Garden is the highest grossing venue on the whole planet, according to Billboard, good for about $776 million in sales in the aughts; Radio City, at around a quarter of MSG's capacity, did even better (?) at $804 million--meaning something is screwy in this press release, but yes, big business regardless. One wonders how weighted towards the front end of the decade these numbers might be. [Brooklyn Vegan]
