Currently the biggest problem with getting acts booked is the more with the current arena management (NHL) than anything.

~~Making note NOT to help steer the thread topic off course any more~~~ is probably the best venue to host an event in the valley. US Airways really isn't that great, the only thing going for it is the location and people being able to use the light rail to get there. is a much nicer venue though in my opinion when comparing the two. A responsible manager should be able to book big events and provide revenue to Glendale and the arena.
