The Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb., opened in September with a bang that's still resonating. Highlighting the new facility's first few weeks is a slate of 10 concerts in 80 days from a variety of top-tier talent.
Michael Bublé was the venue's first concert on Sept. 13, followed by Jason Aldean with openers Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett on Sept. 19, the Eagles on Oct. 4, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley on Oct. 10 and Bon Jovi on Oct. 20. Upcoming shows include P!nk on Nov. 9, Trans-Siberian Orchestra on Nov. 14, John Mayer on Nov. 22, Elton John on Nov. 23 and Jay Z on Dec. 1.
On top of that impressive lineup, the 16,000-capacity arena, which is owned by the city and managed by SMG, will host a full slate of sports and family events. "It's a true multipurpose arena," GM Tom Lorenz says, adding that the building recently held a food show and is equipped to do rodeo, monster truck and family events.
