Simpsonville City Council, by unanimous vote, extended a five year contract to TRZ Entertainment for management of the Amphitheater in Simpsonville. While TRZ has been under contract in the past they were limited to one year terms.
According to Council Member Jenn Hulehan (Ward 3) in her blog post:
TRZ presented us with an economic impact study, conducted by an expert third party at their expense, illustrating the huge gains we would receive from a stronger concert schedule. This data, provided at Council’s request, drove our decision to approve the 5-year contract at last night’s Council meeting. Those bigger, better, more impactful concerts will come because TRZ is investing in a long-term contract with Live Nation, the largest live entertainment company in America.
Live Nation is the largest live entertainment company in the country and because of its size, current contract with TRZ Entertainment, and performance contracts with various tours, is expected to bring far stronger acts to Simpsonville.
