(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Cleveland newspaper The Plain Dealer has struck a deal to acquire the naming rights at the former Scene Pavilion in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
The amphitheater is owned by Jacobs Investments Management Co., and operated by Live Nation’s Cleveland office, formerly Belkin Productions.
“Our two companies have a long history of successful collaborations,” said Michael Belkin, president of the Midwest division of Live Nation. “We’ve done many promotions together over the years.”
The 5,000-seat facility was originally known as the Nautica Stage when it opened in 1987, and has undergone a few name changes over the years. In 2002, the stage was covered with a tentlike top as part of a $5 million renovation. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
