Tinley Park’s popular outdoor music venue has been renamed.
The venue formerly known as the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre is now the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, Live Nation announced.
The new name comes after Live Nation Entertainment and Hollywood Casino of Aurora and Joliet made a multi-year year agreement to rename the largest outdoor amphitheater in the Chicago metropolitan area.
"We are excited to connect two prominent entertainment brands in the Chicagoland market,” Wayne Smith, general manager of Hollywood Casino in Joliet, and Rafael Verde, general manager of Hollywood Casino in Aurora, said in a joint statement. “We believe this opportunity further solidifies our commitment to providing exciting entertainment options for our customers and exposes our brand to a whole new demographic.”
The venue will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year, having opened in 1990.
The venue is one of the biggest amphitheaters in America and can seat up to 28,000 fans.
Artists including Jason Aldean, Van Halen, Kid Rock, J. Cole, Tim McGraw, Nicki Minaj and Ed Sheeran are expected to perform this year.
