RIDGEFIELD, WA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A consultant's report revealed that the Amphitheater at Clark County has been been operating in the red since it opened in 2003 by as much as 3 million a year.
The 18,000-seat shed, originally built without public investment by Quincunx of Washington — a privately held subsidiary of of New York-based promoter/management company Q Prime for $40 million, has yet to fully catch on with the local public.
According to The Oregonian, the amphitheater has been a source of local controversy, generating noise complaints and traffic concerns for locals along with notorious parking issues (the venue has reportedly instituted some changes such as shuttles to improve parking.)
The venue is currently only hosting 4 scheduled events for this year, with more likely to be announced. Coldplay, the opening show for the season has already sold out, making it the first show in the theatre's history to do so. Other shows scheduled for this year include Nickelback, Cruefest and Def Leppard. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
