Best Mid-Sized Venue Makeover - 2010
When AEG Live first announced that it had partnered with Kroenke Sports Enterprises to manage the Broomfield Events Center, a far-flung venue with a checkered history, skeptics wondered how the partners would turn it into a choice destination. Still, history has shown that, under the direction of Chuck Morris, AEG Live can transform Commerce City soccer fields into a prime location for a major music festival. And when the curtain was raised on the renovated, renamed 1stBank Center in March, the transformation was impressive. With good sound and great sight lines, this venue feels more like a concert hall than a mid-sized arena.
