The problems with the Rent are not just limited to declining UConn football attendance numbers. UConn only plays six games there a year. The real issue is the stadium gets very few other big scale bookings. It has not had a single concert in ten years. Very little new development has occurred in and around the stadium because it makes little business sense to build near something that is empty nearly every day of the year. The Rent is always going to struggle given its limited usage (which is not likley to change). Even if UConn sold out all its games, that will not change this dynamic.
why doesn't the stadium get big time shows in there anymore?

I thought that after the first two loud concerts that the neighborhoods nearby were successful in getting more concerts banned.
