SOUTHHAVEN, Miss. (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation Entertainment announced that they have landed a new three-year exclusive deal to book the BankPlus Amphitheater in Southaven, Mississippi.
“Live Nation is the best in the business, and the BankPlus Amphitheater is in great hands under their leadership,” said Darren Musselwhite, the Mayor of Southaven. “With the world’s largest touring operation, Live Nation will bring more artists to Southaven than ever before, which will improve the appeal of our city for locals and tourists alike.”
The 12,500 capacity BankPlus Amphitheater opened in 2006 and has maintained an active concert calendar since its debut. Over the past decade, the venue has hosted performances by the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, The White Stripes, ZZ Top, Velvet Revolver, Willie Nelson and many more.
To oversee operations at the amphitheater, Live Nation will maintain a satellite office in Southaven which will be operated by Doussan’s Live Nation New Orleans Regional office team.
The 2018 BankPlus Amphitheater will begin announcing its season line-up of concerts later this month.
