That's it as of right now...nothing else in the state has this amount of quality shows.
CCCC is being renovated this summer.

The Eastern Prom is going to have 12,000+ for Mumford & Sons in Portland. And, I'm not going to list them all, but: http://www.statetheatreportland.com/

10 of 14 concerts in Bangor are either oldies or country. You have that Godsmack/heavy metal show, moe (jam band), BNL/Blues Traveller, and the teeny bopper show. Not really appeasing the 25-35 year old sweet spot.

If Bangor is such an old community as you like to say, why on earth would they give 2 shits about appeasing the 25-35 year old sweet spot that isn't living there in the first place? Seems like they should focus on the demographic...and dude, you can downplay those shows all you want, there are some excellent concerts coming to that area and quite honestly, acts of that magnitude that have never been in that vicinity.

Also, thanks for the update on the CCCC...it's about time that place got some TLC. Checked out the list for the State Theater...not much there as far as I can see but evidently there must be some good things. Couple shows that would interest me...

I get a sense that you are poking fun at Bangor. That ain't right - it's an awesome place. It has daylight like 22 hours a day there.

10K is that the moose population or senior citizens lining up to see Lawrence Welk? I hear they give out a free bottle fo geritol with every paid concert ticket.

Blah blah blah.......isn't it sad knowing that you'll be long gone before Burlington ever gets an arena?

Re: OT: New Bangor Arena Update

I'd rather they continue to hold the tournament in Hartford or Albany so I can look forward to getting mugged.


Burlington would be nice but I hear their arena doesn't have any open dates

Mugged in West Hartford???? By whom a one percenter living in a mansion driving a Mercedes coup? You obviously have never been to the University of Hartford.

I made the stupid decision of walking from Downtown Hartford to West Hartford (UofH) that Championship weekend because I like walking and checking out new places. But I went on the less scenic route through Albany Avenue -RT 44. Those were the longest 2-3 miles of my life, terrible neighborhood. I was also surprised at how segregated the Hartford area is. As soon as I crossed the Railroad tracks into West Hartford, everything changed for the better...

Maybe Charles Dickens was inspired to write Tale of Two Cities after taking your exact walk from Hartford to West Hartford.

I actually think West Hartford is pretty cool. They have some great restaurants that I frequent during the AE tournament.
