House of Blues Concerts and Scene Magazine, an Ohio entertainment publication, have
agreed to a naming rights deal to change the 4,800-capacity Nautica Pavilion to Scene
Pavilion. Last year the amphitheater underwent a $5 million renovation.
But a war might be brewing. Competitor Clear Channel Entertainment books the Tower
City Amphitheater. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports, "Michael Belkin is on a mission," said
a concert club owner who got a call from the Clear Channel executive last week. "He's telling
everybody what he's going to do. He's threatening to pull his ads."
Scene Pavilion's lineup this year includes Norah Jones, BB King/Jeff Beck, Earth, Wind
& Fire and Heart.
