Top 40 venues of 2003
According to Pollstar magazine, the John Labatt Centre ranks as the 38th top
ticket-selling venue in 2003, a list that consists of venues around the worldl,
including the United States and England. In the past year, the arena has been
home to the London Knights hockey team, in addition to being the site of concert
entertainment like Jane’s Addiction and John Mayer. Though the JLC is
a mid-size venue, the Pollstar rankings include venues of all sizes. In Canada,
our beloved JLC is the country’s third top-selling venue, behind the
almighty Bell Centre in Montreal and the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
