Barclays Center releases May 2019 calendar: three concerts, boxing, three graduations--and maybe some hockey

Compared to last year, at least, the Barclays Center stands to have a busy May. The schedule released yesterday indicates three concerts (Cher, Mother's Day Music Festival, Erykah Badu), one boxing event, one New York Liberty basketball game, plus, possibly two Islanders playoff games.

Barclays also announced, with no specifics, five private events: three graduations, one conference, one unspecified. (That unspecified event is the Brooklyn Public Library's fundraiser, "Ball for Brooklyn.")

As reported, there were  two ticketed events, three private events, and four graduations in May 2018.
