The venue fills a capacity gap in the market between the 2,200-capacity Revolution Concert Center, which CTT exclusively books, and larger venues such as 13,000-capacity Taco Bell Arena.

Dennis Miller, scheduled July 27, is the first artist booked under the new deal. Thornton adds CenturyLink Arena to a booking portfolio that also includes the recently added 5,000-cap Idaho Center Outdoor Pavilion.

CenturyLink Arena is home of the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads and the NBA Development League’s Idaho Stampede.
