The Amp Ranks 2nd in U.S. - 3rd Worldwide in Latest Poll
A high-selling 2019 season has placed the St. Augustine Amphitheatre among the top venues in the world, according to industry publication Pollstar Magazine.
With more than $3.4 million in ticket sales and 74,226 tickets sold in the first half of the year, the Amp has ranked No. 2 in the United States and No. 3 worldwide.
“A ranking this high is a crowning achievement not possible without the incredible artists who perform on our stage, our promoter partners, volunteers, and the loyal concert fans that travel from near and far to see their favorite acts play in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this incredible accomplishment,” said Gabriel Pellicer, St. Augustine Amphitheatre Interim General Manager.
It's a continued trend of growth: The Amp scored No. 3 in the U.S. and No. 4 worldwide in 2018 and No. 11 and No. 62 respectively in 2017. In that time, the venue has held many sold-out events, including Trevor Noah, Kane Brown, Leon Bridges, Santana and Tame Impala.
The Amp rebranded earlier this year to its colloquial name and added extra seating to a total of 4,700 seats. The Pollstar report is available at pollstar.com.
