MANSFIELD, MA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The outdoor amphitheater outside of Boston formerly known as The Tweeter Center has a new moniker as of June 4th – The Comcast Center.
The new name for the Mansfield Mass. shed was announced as the result of a new ten-year pact between the venue's operators, Live Nation and cable provider Comcast over naming rights vor the venue.
"We are excited to join with Live Nation to place our name on one of the most-loved entertainment venues in New England," said Randy Waddell, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Comcast's NorthCentral Division. "As we continue to invest and grow throughout Massachusetts, this partnership underscores our long-term commitment to delivering an unparalleled entertainment experience to our local customers."
The Comcast Center is owned and operated by Live Nation and can accommodate 19,900 people and hosts approximately 35-40 concerts per year. Some of the well-known acts on this summer's lineup include Tim McGraw, John Mayer, Jimmy Buffet, the Dave Matthews Band and The Police. Eric Clapton's June 4th gig will be the inaugural performance under the aegis of the new name.
"We are very pleased to welcome Comcast to the Live Nation family and are looking forward to both an exciting summer and a successful, long-term partnership," said Don Law, President of Live Nation New England. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
