Padres inaugurates new concert venue
Major League Baseball team the San Diego Padres, in partnership with entertainment company Live Nation, recently inaugurated the newly constructed concert venue named Sycuan Stage located at Petco Park’s ‘Park at the Park’.
According to a press release, the new venue will hold more than 6,000 guests and host “a minimum” of eight events a year featuring national acts – starting with the inaugural event, LED’s My Life Every Day Memorial Day EDM festival that will be held on May 25-26. This will be followed by the double-header heavy metal bill of Coheed and Cambria and Mastodon on June 26. Tickets are available at LiveNation.com.
“Petco Park is more than a ballpark and has become San Diego’s premier entertainment venue,” said Padres President of Business Operations Erik Greupner in a press release. “In addition to our award-winning Padres gameday experience, we are proud to partner with Live Nation to bring some of the hottest musical acts to the Sycuan Stage at Park at the Park. This one-of-a-kind venue is the latest step in making Petco Park a world-class entertainment destination.”
The Sycuan Stage is the first outdoor venue of its kind to be included in a Major League Baseball ballpark, features a state-of-the-art roof system, a 64-by-28-by-5-foot stage, and is situated on a 2.8-acre space beyond the centerfield fence.
“Live Nation is excited to partner with the San Diego Padres to combine resources and bring live music to the heart of downtown San Diego,” said Candace Mandracia, president of Live Nation San Diego. “The central location and unique space that Park at the Park offers makes for an incredible concert-going experience.”
