BALTIMORE (AP) — Two Baltimore concert venues had great years despite a national trend in poor ticket sales.

The Baltimore Sun reports that in 2011 both 1st Mariner Arena and Rams Head Live beat their ticket sales numbers from the previous year. According to the trade magazine Pollstar, ticket sales dropped around the rest of the country.

Billboard Magazine, meanwhile named 1st Mariner as the top-selling arena of its size. It hosted Elton John.

Among the acts featured at Rams Head Live was pop singer Robyn.

    With the revenue they should tear down 1st Mariner and rebuild that sorry excuse for an arena. Terrible seats, poor ventilation, and horrible acoustics. The place has so much potential but hasn’t been rennovated since the 1970s. Add some new equipment and bring hockey back to Baltimore!
