Since opening its doors in April of 2017, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment—the business enterprise that manages the Coliseum—has focused on securing a wide range of events to take place at the iconic arena. On top of last week’s packed schedule of events that included Barry Manilow, Roger Waters, and the Islanders vs. Flyers preseason game, September will be capped off with Professional Bull Riders, and Paul McCartney. On Thursday, Oct. 5, the venue will celebrate six months since reopening with Bruno Mars in concert.

“Thank you to the Long Island community for its support in making the reopening of the Coliseum such a success,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “This addition of thrilling events to our roster is a testament to our team’s dedication to making Long Island the marquee entertainment destination. We have worked tirelessly to help create an unforgettable visitor experience and we will continue to expand our programming to offer Long Islander’s a dynamic sports and entertainment experience.”

The announcement of new, exciting programming is the latest major milestone the Coliseum has reached after being named the highest grossing venue in the 10,001 – 15,000 capacity category in the United States—number 4 worldwide—according to Billboard’s mid-year report.

The newly renovated 416,000 square foot arena hosts a variety of events annually, including concerts, family shows, sporting events, outdoor festivals and more.
