Barclays Center releases August 2014 event calendar: family shows, concerts, boxing, hoops

The Barclays Center has released its August 2014 event calendar, which includes far more family shows than in the previous year, but no MTV Video Music Awards.

There will be five circus shows (continuing from this month), ten Marvel Live shows, five concerts (three of them Arcade Fire), one boxing event, and one celebrity basketball event, for a total of 22 events. The maximum attendance is expected to be 14,000, for Arcade Fire.

August 2013 calendar

By contrast August 2013 had six concerts, plus five days of VMA pre-production. And no family shows (the circus was confined to July), boxing, or basketball.
