Do you think a $100M overhaul of the XL Center will allow the venue to attract more shows and concerts?
Poll Description

Hartford’s XL Center is slated for a $100 million renovation.

Gov. Ned Lamont, in his current budget, lined up $80 million in public funding to cover the majority of the costs.

International sports and entertainment company Oak View Group is preparing to wager at least $20 million that the arena can transform from an aging venue running a $2 million annual deficit to a bustling moneymaker that can attract “well above” 30 shows and concerts a year.

The XL Center has lost much of its concert business to the state’s casinos over the years.
