Evidently the Arena doesn’t have a name, the City just calls it “arena”. Does the building still have Grossinger signs?
ISU rents the ice for hockey, the City actually makes a little money on those.
Below is the report posted on line for the September 27th concert:
Of course this report leaves out what Megadeth & Biohazard were paid to perform:
This show lost $27,397.87
This show was held October 10th:
An actual profit – $6,337.26
The City recently hired two guys for the Arts and Entertainment Department. Did you know the City had one?
In addition the City has been working with NTL Productions, Nicholas Todd Leroy. https://www.bloomingtonil.gov/government/advanced-components/search?q=NTL%20Productions
He owned the “short-lived” music hall and lounge called The Stable in downtown Bloomington. He is currently being sued over that fiasco. He also has a bit of a checkered past. Search here: https://mcleancountyil.gov/137/Court-Records-Search
Hopefully the two new employees have better track records.
