Some of the Pageant' s 119,416 so far in 2011.
Pollstar has just released the ticket sales number for the first three quarters of 2011, and the Pageant has once again sold the fourth most tickets of any club venue in the world.

Our hometown venue has seen more people through its doors this year than any club other than Terminal 5 in New York, the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. and Ancienne Belgique in Belgium. These numbers don't include stadiums or amphitheaters, but that's not to say this isn't the big leagues: Terminal 5 boasts a capacity of 3,000, and Denver's Fillmore Auditorium (No. 13 on the list) checks in at 3,700. The Pageant can fit a maximum of 2,300 people, depending on the event. The top ten clubs so far this year, below.

  1. Terminal 5 (New York, NY) 187,781
  2. 9:30 Club (Washington, DC) 166,955
  3. Ancienne Belgique (Brussels, Belgium) 163,213
  4. The Pageant (St. Louis, MO) 119,416
  5. First Avenue (Minneapolis, MN) 114,761
  6. Ogden Theatre (Denver, CO) 112,643
  7. Best Buy Theater (New York, NY) 106,903
  8. Rams Head Live! (Baltimore, MD) 104,538
  9. Stubb's Bar-B-Q (Austin, TX) 99,815
  10. The Joint (Las Vegas, NV) 97,287

There are no other Missouri venues in the top 100 so far this year, though there are eight in Chicago -- more than any other city in the world. It's worth noting that these numbers reflect sales figures reported to Pollstar only.

And if you want to discuss underused but awesome venues in town I can go on and on about American Theater all day.


This is more than outstanding. This is great. Now could we begin to understand that Kiel Opera House, whatever they call it, is not a Pageant with more seating. Nor is it a smaller Fox. It is one of the top 5 downtown performng arts centers in the U.S. with the capability to host show/events at the same time. It is the 'demand-driver' all other cities offer as they compete for travel business. It is historic and its history is its marketing. In drawing the two, three, four nights stays, it 'feeds' grand avenue and the Loop. It validates a  city. But it is not being used to its  capabilities. .Why not?


Not really a good place to hear a real guitar amp anyways.
