Maine’s Portland Press Herald reports that the managers of the State Theatre will run a 5,000-capacity outdoor concert site on Thompson’s Point next summer.
“The venue will be part of the redevelopment of 30 acres of former industrial land on Thompson’s Point, which eventually will include retail space, offices, residences, a hotel, and the Circus Conservatory of America,” Ray Routhier reported.
Stage location and seating types have yet to be determined, along with how many or what kind of acts will perform on the site.
“[Manager Lauren] Wayne said the venue might attract the kind of acts that play the State Theatre, which holds about 1,800 people, but it is not likely to host country stars since those acts attract larger crowds,” Routhier reported.
