Barclays Center May 2018 calendar: two ticketed events, three private events, and four graduations

The Barclays Center will have a slow May, according to the calendar circulated yesterday by the arena, which is not atypical, given that the arena has to set aside open dates for potential NBA or NHL playoff games, and then only sees those dates open up when the teams get eliminated from contention.

There are just two ticketed events, plus three private events and four graduation ceremonies. (One concert, featuring Big Sean, was postponed.)

While the Community Notice circulated by the arena does not specify the private events (which is the arena's current--but not previous--practice) the commencements, a web search indicates, include:
  • May 15: NYU's Tandon School of Engineering
  • May 17: Long Island University
  • May 30: Baruch College
  • May 31: Brooklyn College

May 2017 calendar

In May 2017, there were three ticketed events and at least three graduations, though, at that time, the arena was not releasing information about non-ticketed events. (There were six concerts in May 2016.)
