SACRAMENTO, CA (CelebrityAccess) — Nederlander Concerts announced that they have secured a multi-year exclusive agreement for Bonney Field with Spectra by Comcast Spectacor to promote, produce, and program events at the 12,000-seat soccer facility.
Nederlander will work with Spectra to identify promoters, agents and festivals to work with the venue. Last year, the field staged shows that included Weezer, Panic! At The Disco, Lindsey Stirling, Phantogram, and the Sacramento Philharmonic.
“We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Spectra as the company also provides corporate partnership support at some of our California properties, and we look forward to working with their stellar team in Sacramento to enhance programming at Bonney Field with marquee artists,” said Alex Hodges, CEO of Nederlander Concerts. “Spectra has an outstanding reputation throughout the industry and we’re confident that we can bring new and exciting opportunities to Bonney Field. Adding Bonney Field to our roster of core venues aligns our goals of growing Nederlander’s brand and expanding our footprint in Northern California. Plus, we can offer a variety of seating capacities, with the flexibility of a mobile stage, creating a unique venue for tours and routing.”
First opened in 2014 on the grounds of Cal Expo, home of the California State Fair, the facility is one of the largest professional soccer fields in the U.S. and is currently the home of Sacramento Republic FC and PRO Rugby Sacramento.
The approximately $3 million privately-funded facility is a private-public collaboration among Spectra Food Services & Hospitality, Sacramento Republic FC and Cal Expo. – Staff Writers
