Residents in Wichita, Kansas have been turning out in force to support the recently built Intrust Bank Arena. Assistant General Manager Scott Neal told us, like Lincoln, there were nay-sayers, but now that the new arena is open, most have changed their tune.
“Even for us, four months down the road, It’s hard for us to find a detractor…this is a proven formula that works for communities all across the country if not the world, so there is no negative to this.”
Neal says 15,000 seat Intrust Arena in Wichita has already draw A-list acts like Billy Joel, Elton John, Brad Paisley, George Strait and many others in the first four months. He says Lincoln’s proposed 16,000 seat arena would surely put Lincoln in line for A-list acts as well.
