After Live Nation acquired Summit Music Hall in February, local music lovers were wondering how the mega-booker would change the traditionally independently run music venue.
We're getting our first indication today, June 11. Live Nation has announced that it will renovate Summit Music Hall to up its capacity to 1,350; upgrade the sound system; expand restrooms; improve sight lines from the balcony; and upgrade the artist dressing rooms to include en suite bathrooms and showers.
Summit will be closed from June 21 through early September, and the Marquis Theater will close from July 2 through August 12 (but will continue to sell pizza).
STS9 will welcome the new Summit at a concert on September 6 before its back-to-back shows at Red Rocks.
