Barclays Center releases July 2014 event calendar: family shows on seven days, two concerts, one celebrity hoops game

It's again a summer lull at the Barclays Center, though construction around it should proceed quite busily.

According to the July 2014 event calendar circulated by the Community Affairs Office, there will be 11 family shows over seven days, two Katy Perry concerts, and one celebrity basketball challenge.

The family shows--Walking With Dinosaurs, Cirque du Soleil--are expected to draw only 5,000 people, while the Katy Perry concerts could draw 13,000. For some reason, the event calendar now lists VIP Access Tours; those are relatively small groups of people.

Unlike in 2013, a weekly greenmarket has not been announced.

The event calendar in July 2013 was even more sparse: one concert (Further), a wrestling event, and five days of family shows, encompassing seven Cirque du Soleil performances.
