YOUNGSTOWN, OH (April 1, 2019) — JAC Management Group and JAC Live announced a new partnership with Live Nation to launch the new Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre in downtown Youngstown. This partnership will book and promote national and international live concerts and entertainment at the brand-new outdoor venue. The venue will be located within a sprawling riverfront park that will span 22 acres, which 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. It will host 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. Ryan adds, “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,” explained Ryan.
“We are proud to be working with JAC Management Group and the City of Youngstown to bring extraordinary live events to the new venue,” said Barry Gabel, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sponsorship for Live Nation Cleveland.
Together, JAC Management Group and Live Nation will begin to announce The Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre’s inaugural concert lineup in April.
