Los Angeles Considers Taking Greek Theatre Operations In-House

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — The Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Commission delayed a key vote on a proposal to have the City of Los Angeles operate the Greek Theatre, instead of an external concessionare.

The question of who will operate the iconic Greek Theatre has been up in the air for months, after the city's Recreation and Parks Commission voted to recommend a bid from Live nation to operate the venue over a bid from longtime operator Nederlander Concerts in conjunction with their new partners, AEG.

Last month, the Los Angeles City Council voted 11-3 against granting the operating concession for the venue to Live Nation, despite the recommendation from the Recreation and Parks Commission.

The Recreation and Parks Commission was originally expected to restart the bidding process, but recently, an alternative of having the city run the venue seemed to gain cachet, following the model of venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which is operated by the City of Denver. The vote was delayed by a lack of a quorum, the Los Angeles Daily News said.

The panel rescheduled the vote to take place during their next meeting on March 19. – Staff Writers
