Live Nation Taking Over Bayfront Park
Move over Fillmore Miami Beach, Bayfront Park Amphitheater is about to get in on some of the Live Nation action. Whether you love or abhor it, Live Nation, one of the nation's leading concert promotion companies is set to take over the operation of Bayfront Park Amphitheater in Downtown Miami.
According to Miami Today, the deal is basically set in stone and all that is needed is finally approval by the Miami City Commission on July 24. When Live Nation does obtain final approval, the venue will be closed until at least December or January to allow for some remodeling.
What can we expect after the remodel? Well, the venue's setting will go from 10,000 to 6,000 to allow for individual stadium-style seats. Ten corporate boxes and aesthetic changes to stage will also be made. And with Live Nation at the helm, expect plenty of great concerts to stop by the poorly underused venue.
