Barclays is No. 1 for concerts, family shows

The Brooklyn Nets' home arena is the top-grossing United States venue for concerts and family shows, according to Billboard Magazine and Pollstar Magazine.

The $1 billion Barclays Center has sold more tickets in these categories than any other venue in the U.S. in the first six months this year.

Billboard has Barclays at No. 2 worldwide in gross ticket sales revenue ($46.9 million).

Only The O2 Arena in London is higher.

"We are proud to have become a destination venue that has been recognized globally in a short period of time," Barclays Center Brett Yormark said in a statement. "After receiving terrific feedback from promoters of major artists last week in Los Angeles, we are confident that we will expand our programming schedule and be in an even better position in year two of Barclays Center."
