AUSTIN, TX (CelebrityAccess) — Paragon Presents, the joint venture promoter formed by TAG Presents and Nederlander Concerts, has signed an exclusive agreement to promote, produce and program Austin live entertainment venue The Belmont.
Located in the heart of Austin, the 1,000-capacity Belmont re-opened as a concert and private event venue in 2012 after a stint as a restaurant. The building features a recently renovated interior, with a two-tiered mezzanine, as well as a courtyard entrance.
The Belmont most recently served as an official SXSW venue, hosting events by companies such as Google, SYFY, NBC, Comcast and Spin Media, plus artists including John Legend, Ludacris, Lil Jon, Soul Asylum and Too $hort.
“The Belmont is a perfect fit for our vision of producing fan-centric experiences, while enhancing Austin’s music scene. It is an ideal showroom to host great live entertainment focused on artists from a variety of genres who have existing fan bases, or emerging artists who will gain valuable exposure in this market,” said Paul Thornton, President of Paragon Presents.
“We are thrilled to partner with Paragon Presents and utilize their expertise in programming The Belmont,” said General Manager, Ham Bijari. “The Belmont is a unique and beautiful space with its own personality. The sound is incredible, and the venue is truly the place to experience your favorite artist(s) in an intimate setting. Fans always have a great time and there are several amazing vantage points to enhance their live music experience. With 3 bars and an attentive staff you won't miss a thing. I look forward to hosting our next event.” – Staff Writers
