Barclays Center releases May 2022 calendar: just seven ticketed events. Also: six commencement ceremonies.

The Barclays Center yesterday circulated its May 2022 event calendar, with just seven ticketed events: four WNBA New York Liberty games, two concerts, and one boxing card. A J Balvin concert scheduled for May 22 has been postponed.

This doesn't help with the arena's financial struggles; they had to leave dates open to accommodate a long playoff run for the Brooklyn Nets, but that was not to be. (Pre-pandemic, May 2019 and May 2018 were similarly paltry.)

There are also at least six scheduled commencement ceremonies, as noted below, with one in June. (I compiled that list via a web search, so it's possible others will surface, or be scheduled.)

May 2021

Last year, after finally expanding capacity, the arena sent out a calendar in late May.

That at least included two commencement ceremonies, which, while not open to the general public, should be included, to alert neighbors to potential crowds nearby.
