Michael Bublé will play the first concert at Pinnacle Bank Arena

Comments Off on Michael Bublé will play the first concert at Pinnacle Bank Arena


Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, is promoting an ‘opening season’ rather than one big opening night. The first in the season is Michael Bublé on 13 September.

SMG/Pinnacle General Manager Tom Lorenz said:

We wanted a really nice show that had broad appeal. We wanted something very classy. This is a community building, and we wanted to make sure everyone felt comfortable. Michael does contemporary music, no doubt. But he also has that connection to Sinatra. It’s also a big show. He was a perfect fit to open this up in a very grand and classy style.

The Bublé concert will be the first big show at the arena. But it shouldn’t be seen as the building’s single opening event, Lorenz explained:

We really want to talk about it as a grand opening season. We have the opportunity to go from early September through November, when basketball starts, to kick in hard. The building is too big to make it just a single event. It really becomes an extended opening.

Jason Aldean and Pink are also lined up. Lorenz added:

People had trepidations that we’d do all country or all college bands. These shows, I think, prove that we’re going to do all kinds of music.

André Rieu will play a third show in Wembley Arena on 6 December due to high demand for tickets. The extra concert is part of his December tour in the UK and Ireland, which will take in two new arenas, The Hydro in Glasgow and First Direct Arena in Leeds.

Rieu has made his second No. 1 appearance of the year on Billboard magazine’s weekly Hot Tours ranking with box office grosses reported from tour dates during March and April. Leaving behind artist like The Cure, Black Sabbath, Diana Krall and Prince. Rieu earned the No. 1 spot due to his tour through the United states and Canada, four concerts in Rio de Janeiro and a performance in the city of Belo Horizonte.

For the ceremonies surrounding the inauguration of the new King and Queen of the Netherlands, Rieu was invited to arrange a brand new waltz medley, The Coronation Waltz, which he performed live for over approximately 30.000 people during the King’s ball in Amsterdam.
