Wichita, KS (October 1, 2015) – The SMG-managed INTRUST Bank Arena hosted its two millionth ticketed fan at last Thursday’s Florida Georgia Line concert. Delania Taylor was surprised at the concert with the news that she was the lucky two millionth guest.
INTRUST Bank Arena staff presented Taylor and her guest with a prize package including upgraded concert tickets from the upper level to the lower level, a meet and greet with Florida Georgia Line, a commemorative ticket which was then autographed by Florida Georgia Line, a commemorative concert poster, and more.
“We’re excited to have reached such an incredible milestone in just our sixth year of operation,” said SMG General Manager, AJ Boleski. “Having sold two million tickets is an outstanding accomplishment and a huge testament to the support this community shows our facility. We’re in the business of creating memories, one guest at a time, and are looking forward to creating those memories for the next two million fans.”
INTRUST Bank Arena reached its one millionth ticket sold in 2012 at the sold out Jason Aldean concert.
