PITTSBURGH (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Trib Total Media, publishers of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, have signed on as a naming-rights sponsor at the Amphitheatre at Station Square which will now be known as the Trib Total Media Amphitheatre at Station Square.
The shed is operated by The Pittsburgh Concerts Group, which invested $1 million last year to re-open the venue after it was dormant for two years. Pittsburgh Concerts hopes to stage between 30 and 40 events at the venue per year and has already announced 19 confirmed bookings for this year, including dates by Heart, the Flaming Lips, 311, B.B. King and the Scorpions, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review said.
Several charity events have been planned at the venue as well, including Fallen Not Forgotten 2 on May 31 to benefit the families of two police officers killed in the line of duty and a charity fundraiser for the 2011 Wheelchair Games, to be headlined by the Charlie Daniels Band.
Terms of the sponsorship agreement were not disclosed.
"We're pleased to be the title sponsor of the Amphitheatre and to help provide entertainment options for the whole family," says Ralph Martin, Trib Total Media president and CEO. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
