SAN DIEGO (CelebrityAccess) – Major League Baseball’s San Diego Padres have signed a three-year deal with Live Nation to book eight concerts annually at Petco Park, the 3-acre green space behind center field.
Under the terms of the new agreement, the Padres invested $700,000 to build a permanent stage inside the park, while Live Nation will serve as the buyer and promoter for all co-branded events.
The Padres have also signed a three-year contract with Sycuan Casino Resort, which will act as its presenting sponsor. The casino was already a team partner and is sponsoring the Padres’ 50thanniversary season in 2019.
While the agreement is not exclusive – the Padres can work with other promoters to book shows at the Sycuan stage – the first concert under the Live Nation agreement is Coheed and Cambria scheduled to take place June 26.
