For the second year in a row, the Pageant in the Delmar Loop is among the top-5 concert venues in the world when it comes to ticket sales.

Pollstar, an industry website, bases its rankings on reports from venues about the number of tickets sold. The Pageant was number 5 in 2011, with reported sales of 181,451 tickets.

Solar panels will soon help brighten the night a little in the Delmar Loop in St. Louis.

The Moonrise Hotel announced today that they'll be installing solar panels to power not only the illumination and rotation of the moon perched atop its building, but also operations in the Rooftop Terrace Bar.
