BOK Center Meets SMG

Tulsa Mayor Bill LaFortune has named SMG facility manager of the under-construction BOK Center, which is expected to debut in 2008.

SMG was also chosen to run the city’s Tulsa Convention Center.

The company said it plans to make Tulsa a destination for major concerts.

SMG VP Sims Hinds has already promised a visit by The Rolling Stones if the band is touring after ’08, according to a report from Tulsa’s KOTV television.
