The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion ranked second in the top 100 amphitheaters in the world based on the number of tickets sold during 2014, according to Pollstar magazine, the concert industry's leading trade publication. The Pavilion's ticket sales totaled 488,916 for shows played in 2014. The Pavilion has consistently ranked in the top five since 2010.

The Pavilion celebrated its 25th season in 2014, continuing its tradition of presenting exceptional performing arts events, educational outreach programs and live music.

"The Pavilion's 25th season proved to be one of our best seasons yet," said Jerry MacDonald, president and CEO of The Pavilion. "We would not have had such a successful season without our partnership with Live Nation, our dedicated staff and supportive community. We already look forward to a strong lineup in 2015."

The Pavilion had 17 soldout concerts in 2014, including Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band May 9, Jimmy Buffett May 29, Luke Bryan Sept. 19 and Jason Aldean Oct. 23.
