Tulsa’s BOK Center Breaks Arena Record With Help From Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber

Between March 14 and 26, the arena hosted 10 events in 13 days, a record for the venue.

The ASM Global-managed BOK Center just wrapped up the busiest two weeks in the arena’s history, hosting 10 events in 13 days between March 14 and 26.

“Since re-opening, our ASM team aggressively engaged the industry to bring top talent back to Tulsa. It was a huge success and we’re ready to do it all over again,” said BOK Center vp and general manager Bryan Crowe, who joined the BOK Center in October from Destination El Paso, where he served as CEO. “Ten events in 13 days kept our team busy, but the buy-in and dedication we have from our employees and the local community who support these events is what makes it all worth it. The success of these sold-out concerts is why Tulsa and the BOK Center are a must play for touring artists.”

Four of those 10 dates were sold-out concerts: Dua Lipa for her first-ever headline show at BOK Center on March 17, Justin Bieber making up a date from his 2020 Justice World Tour on March 18 and two nights of Snoop Dogg, March 24 and 25. Snoop Dogg also hosted the first ticketed event ever at the newly opened River Spirit Casino Resort Lounge inside BOK Center, with pre-parties and after-parties on both of his event nights.


Slipknot performed at the arena on March 23, and the BOK Center’s hometown Tulsa Oilers of the ECHL hosted the Toledo Walleyes for three back-to-back games. The BOK Center also hosted The Price is Right Live on March 14 and the Harlem Globetrotters on March 26.

Upcoming BOK Center shows include The Eagles on May 16, followed by Brooks & Dunn on May 21 and OneRepublic (led by Tulsa native Ryan Tedder) on Aug. 10 with their Never Ending Summer Tour.
