“We’re proud to have Live Nation as our booking partner in the outdoor plaza and amphitheater,” said Maryland Heights Mayor Mike Moeller. “Over the last couple years, we’ve been working together to develop and fund amenities that create a unique and high-quality venue for Live Nation’s concerts, as well as community events like farmer’s markets, local concerts, family movie nights and much more.
