Phoenix Theatre 'Banks' On New Name


PHOENIX, AZ (AP) — The downtown Phoenix venue known as the Dodge Theatre is getting a name change. The building will now be called Comerica Theatre, thanks to a new five-year sponsorship agreement between theater operator Live Nation and Comerica.

Comerica is a Dallas-based bank. Their most famous name-deal to date is for the Detroit Tigers' baseball stadium.


Jerry Seinfeld will be the first act to perform in the newly named space when he takes the stage Oct. 9. Coincidentally, Seinfeld was the first comedian to play the Dodge when it opened in April 2002.
