After struggling with entertainment bookings for its first year—sans the obligatory games that come with housing two minor league sports teams—the Broomfield Event Center has landed a huge act: Cirque du Soleil. Perhaps hiring Gene Felling as its manager this summer is beginning to pay dividends. He came to Broomfield with much fanfare after a successful stint at The Forum in Los Angeles. The Cirque show, titled “Saltimbanco,” runs Dec. 3-13. It marks its return to the Denver area after a successful run downtown a few years back.
What’s Next: We’ll see if this momentum continues and what else Felling can lure to town. We’re also still waiting for Bob Dylan to stop by.
