JAC Management Group announced a new partnership between Live Nation and JAC Live to launch the new Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre in downtown Youngstown, Ohio. The partnership will book and promote national and international live concerts and entertainment at the new outdoor venue located within a sprawling riverfront park that will span 22 acres and includes the Covelli Centre. The Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre is slated to open early this summer and will quite literally
and figuratively change the landscape of downtown Youngstown by hosting an event capacity of up to 4,800.
“Over the last ten years we have we have proudly fostered and grown our relationship with Michael Belkin and the Live Nation Cleveland team here at the Covelli Centre,” said Eric Ryan, President of JAC Management Group & JAC Live. “The extension of this
relationship in the form of a strategic partnership will allow us to further strengthen our industry relationships that will ultimately yield marquee performers and entertainment in Youngstown.”
The venue will host many types of events that can be segmented into community and locally/regionally promoted events and nationally/internationally promoted events. “In the initial planning stages of the Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre, we had two key objectives in mind; first, we wanted a space with the ability to host a variety of local and community events in the spring/fall/summer months. Next, we wanted to build a venue that could also house national and international touring artists and acts that had previously skipped the market. Through the tireless collaboration of many, we are happy to report that the city has accomplished all of these objectives and then some,” Ryan said.
“We are proud to be working with JAC Live and JAC Management Group – to bring extraordinary live events to the new venue,” said Barry Gabel, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sponsorship for Live Nation Cleveland.
