LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Via a “family-first” strategy, ASM Global’s Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum is shattering nearly a half century of attendance records most recently with the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live Glow Party, which produced the highest-grossing shows and ticket sales for the property’s newest tour.
This continues a highly successful run of family shows in recent years at the storied venue including Cirque du Soleil’s Musica and Volta tours, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, ACE Comic Con, Jurassic Quest, the WWE, and the Empire State Fair.
ASM Global Executive Vice President of Stadiums and Arenas Doug Thornton said, “We’ve worked hard in this market to set a bar that few other properties can match. Because of its placement in the center of Long Island and New York City’s suburbs, it was a natural to leverage the family needs. It’s a strategy that’s pleasing millions of our guests in the appropriate markets around the United States.”
Nassau Coliseum General Manager Joseph Zino cited historical ticket data reflecting 60% of ticket sales to families with children. “There are 3 million residents living in Nassau and Suffolk counties—all east of Queens. Nassau’s central location makes it conveniently accessible via major roadways and transportation hubs with acres of ample parking,” he said. Combined with ASM Global’s increasing entertainment booking prowess, we have a winning combination unique in the industry. We are absolutely a favorite family destination.”
“Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live’s partnership with ASM Global has been record setting multiple times over the past six months, culminating with three sellouts in Uniondale, New York, at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Joe Zino, Julyett Spoltore and the entire Nassau Coliseum team are fantastic partners. We look forward to raising the bar and continuing to shatter records together for years to come,” said Nick Shane, Family Entertainment Live, vice president of booking.
Hot Wheels joins events like the Empire State Fair and Jurassic Quest that were so successful in 2022 they have extended their Nassau 2023 dates.
