I just found out that the new Spirit Bank Event Center is getting ready to open its doors soon in Bixby , Oklahoma . The concerts for this fall have just been announced so construction crews are in a hurry to finish by the deadline.
Concert performances for this fall will include Uncle Kracker, Kutless, and Michael Smith.
It's great to have a new events center in town but there has been a bit of talk about the new event center competing with the Mabee Center and the BOK Arena for entertainment acts. Everything should workout though. The Spirit Bank Event Center will host the 66rs basketball games, while the Mabee Center will host the ORU Eagles basketball games. So far it doesn't look to me like they are in competition. The Spirit Bank will be the smallest venue of three venues with a capacity of 4,000 people. The Mabee holds 10,000 people and the BOK Arena holds 18,000 people.
Other events on schedule for Spirit Bank are basketball tournaments, gymnastics and wrestling competitions, hunting and fishing shows, and bridal fairs. Spirit Bank is set to open with its first event in September.
