 1991 'ARENA OF THE YEAR' AWARD CONTINUES THE PALACE'S
 UNPRECEDENTED STRING OF TOP HONORS
 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Adding to its unprecedented streak of top honors, The Palace of Auburn Hills has won Performance magazine's prestigious Readers Poll "Arena of the Year" award for the third successive year after being named "Best New Venue" in 1988. The Palace is the only arena ever to receive the magazine's top honor for new venue followed by three consecutive "Arena of the Year" titles.
 Representatives from Performance, a leading national entertainment industry publication, will formally announce The Palace's 1991 "Arena of the Year" award at the magazine's annual Readers Poll Award Show in San Diego on Feb. 9.
 For 16 years, the Performance Readers Poll, which represents professionals from all facets of the concert touring business, has recognized the top venues of the year. A select nominating committee comprised of industry experts place The Palace on the ballot.
 "It was an honor to receive 'Arena of the Year' in 1989 ... almost unheard of to win it again in 1990," said Thomas S. Wilson, chief executive officer of The Palace/Detroit Pistons/New Pine Knob. "To win it a third time is a great distinction for our building and a tremendous tribute to our people."
 The other finalists in the Readers Poll for "Arena of the Year" for venues with seating capacities of 18,000 and above were the Charlotte Coliseum (North Carolina), Madison Square Garden (New York), Meadowlands Arena (New Jersey), and Rupp Arena (Kentucky).
 In addition to The Palace's award, The New Pine Knob Music Theatre -- which is managed by The Palace -- received its first-ever nomination for "Amphitheatre of the Year" on this year's Readers Poll ballot.
 The Palace and New Pine Knob are owned and operated by partners William Davidson, David Hermelin and Robert Sosnick of Arena Associates, Inc. Opened in 1988, The Palace hosts approximately 185 events annually and surpassed the 8 million mark in attendance earlier this month. One of the country's busiest amphitheaters, The New Pine Knob presented 75 shows and attracted 600,000 guests last summer.
