The Austin360 Amphitheater, a new 14,500-seater amphitheatre at the Circuit of the Americas, has open up with a concert featuring country stars Kenny Chesney and Kacey Musgraves.
The Circuit of the Americas has agreed a ‘multi-year’ sponsorship deal with entertainment publication Austin360. Bobby Epstein, the founding partner of the Circuit of the Americas, said:
Circuit of The Americas is delighted to welcome Austin360 as the naming rights partner for our new amphitheatre. Partnering with the largest and most successful media company in Central Texas gives us a tremendous advantage as we introduce a brand new concert stage into Austin’s established music scene.
Circuit of Americas will this year host races in the V8 Supercars and Moto GP as well as the Formula One US Grand Prix. The Austin360 Amphitheater will be run in partnership with promoter Live Nation and is set to stage a complementary series of concerts and other major events – including performances by the likes of Jimmy Buffet, the Dave Matthews Band, and Train – with its title sponsor providing extensive publicity and other support.
