We can say, ‘We saw them in Wichita’

Thanks to its new Intrust Bank Arena, Wichita had the opportunity to enjoy 18 of Pollstar’s top 50 North American concert tours of the year, including No. 1 Bon Jovi, No. 3 Dave Matthews Band, No. 4 Michael Buble (in photo) and No. 5 Eagles. The No. 12 act, Cirque du Soleil’s “Alegria,” finishes its arena run today. Another act, No. 39 “Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles,” played Century II in March. The big ones that stayed away? Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, James Taylor/Carole King, the Black Eyed Peas, John Mayer and Justin Bieber (though Taylor is rumored to be coming April 30).
