Top 100 Worldwide Club Venues 2010

Pollstar has announced their annual lists, including the top 100 worldwide club venues list based on ticket sales. Once again, it's nice to see the 2,000-capacity Pageant included in the list, not only in the company of some very famous venues, but in the top five venues in the world, no less.

The full list of clubs in the ranking after the jump.

Of course, the catch here is that these rankings are all based on tickets sold and most importantly reported to Pollstar – not something all venues do. So it's with that caveat that you have to read this list.

Regardless, it makes me proud to call The Pageant home about once a week on average throughout the year and see them doing well.

For all the music photographers out there, do you see any familiar venues on this list?

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D850:
I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
