Live Nation and Graystone Quarry Partner to Bring Boutique Amphitheater to Tennessee
THOMPSON’S STATION, TN (February 7, 2019) – Live Nation Entertainment, the world’s leading live entertainment company, and Graystone Quarry Events are teaming up to provide expanded live music options to the area south of Nashville with a new boutique amphitheater at the historic Graystone Quarry. The 7,500-seat facility will open in 2020 with a full season of concert events produced by Live Nation.
The world-class venue will provide premier live entertainment in the completely authentic open-air Tennessee environment. The 138-acre site is convenient to Nashville and the surrounding cities and is located within in a beautiful wooded, natural stone and park-like setting. Graystone Quarry has a rising profile as an upscale destination for weddings, corporate meetings, and private parties.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Graystone Quarry to our portfolio of venues and provide artists with another amazing amphitheater to connect with their fans,” said Tom See, President of Live Nation Venues. “With our partner Graystone Quarry Events, Live Nation will deliver Tennessee concert-goers countless unique and memorable live event experiences starting in 2020.”
The amphitheater will be positioned at the base of a limestone rock quarry surrounded by cliffs up to 100 feet tall, creating a dramatic outdoor location with ideal visual and acoustic space for music events. The reclaimed quarry was active 50 years ago, with the rock used in the construction of Highway 65 through Williamson County.
“We envision this venue hosting some of the most popular touring groups coming to Nashville,” says Brian Traeger, President of Live Nation Tennessee. “The spectacular natural backdrop, alongside modern-day amenities the space will offer are going to create a phenomenal experience for both artists and fans.”
The world-class boutique amphitheater will have room for up to 7,500 concert attendees and a spacious 1 ½ acre plaza area for gathering, dining, and merchandise. The facility will feature state of the art sound, event lighting, and large screen image amplification.
“We’re focused on delivering memorable concert experiences which also include great food, comfortable seating, and convenient parking in a natural and inspiring outdoor setting ideal for enjoying a night of music and fun with friends,” said Rick McEachern, Owner at Graystone Quarry. “And we’re delighted to have Live Nation’s event expertise and talent roster to bring this new venue to life.”
