LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It has had financial ups and downs in its short history, but if this week is any indication things are looking up for the KFC Yum! Center.
Wednesday night, the light and music extravaganza that is the Trans-Siberian Orchestra brought a huge crowd downtown and this week is only getting better with some major acts headed to the city.
"It's really good for the KFC Yum! Center to have 13 events in 14 days," said Dennis Petrullo, the arena's manager.
Jam packed with hot tickets, KFC Yum! Center saw a sold out crowd for Saturday's University of Louisville men's basketball followed Sunday night by one of country music's biggest names as Keith Urban hit the stage. Then Wednesday night, Bardstown husband and wife Marlis and Jeff Sweeney made the drive to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
The couple has been to many concert venues but tell us, the KFC Yum! Center is "Second to none," said Marlis Sweeney.
