Live Nation To Operate Atlanta's Buckhead Theatre

ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation has reportedly inked a deal that will see the promoter operating Atlanta's Buckhead Theatre.

According to the Atlanta Business Journal, The 1,400-capacity Buckhead Theatre will join Live Nation's House of Blues club and theater portfolio and host more than 100 concerts annually.

Previously, the Buckhead was operated by Atlanta developer Charles Loudermilk, who acquired the venue in 2008, the Business Journal reported.

In previous incarnations, the Buckhead was known as the Capri Ballroom in the 1970s and then the Coca-Cola Roxy in the 1980s, when it was operated by Alex Cooley and his business partner Peter Conlon, who is now president of Live Nation Atlanta.

"I've put a lot of work into The Buckhead Theatre and am confident and excited our current staff and my friend, Peter Conlon, will carry on our vision for this fantastic venue and for what it means to our dynamic community,” Loudermilk said in a statement. – Staff Writers
