The Fargodome broke an attendance record in 2016.

Nearly 600,000 people packed the venue last year.

The record crowds produced an operating surplus of over $528,000, which was way above the budgeted $92,000.

Fargodome General Manager Rob Sobolik cites a strong concert line-up last year that included four Garth Brooks concerts, AC/DC, Justin Bieber, James Taylor and Blake Shelton.

Sobolik says a sixth consecutive year of Bison football playoff games also boosted attendance and the stadium’s bottom line.
