LEDYARD, CT (CelebrityAccess) — AEG Live has signed on to handle booking at all of the live performance venues at Foxwoods Resort Casino, as well as to develop new entertainment properties.
Venues at the large casino complex include the Fox Theatre, the Grand Theater, The Scorpion Bar, Celebrity Ballroom, the Grand Pequot Ballroom and the Red Lantern.
A previous partnership between Foxwoods and MGM which included naming rights, expired earlier this year.
“AEG Live joining forces with Foxwoods Resort Casino to enhance and expand the live entertainment program makes perfect sense given our extensive artist relationships and Foxwoods world-class venues,” said Mark Shulman, Vice President and General Manager at AEG Live. “Our new booking and consulting agreement aims to attract patrons to this phenomenal destination by expanding programming, and creating unique content and new properties which connect artists and fans across a variety of genres.”
“Bringing world class entertainers to Foxwoods’ two magnificent theaters is an important part of setting us apart from other gaming and resort destinations,” said Scott Butera, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino. “To enhance our competitive edge we are very proud to announce our alliance with AEG Live, a true leader in the entertainment industry. With thousands of acts at their disposal to complement our entertainment, opportunities are greatly expanded. Having AEG Live as a partner will provide recognition of the Foxwoods brand, the high quality of our entertainment venues and a commitment to provide once in a lifetime, luxurious experience for our guests.” – Staff Writers
