LIVE NATION EXPANDS IN DALLAS, CHARLESTON

Live Nation, which has seen its stock top $100 a share multiple times in the last week, has set an opening date and initial concert lineup for its new Dallas venue, developed in partnership with Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks.

The Echo Lounge & Music Hall, a 1,000-capacity club, will open 11/1 with Mayer Hawthorne. Other upcoming shows include Madison Beer, Mother Mother and Tate McRae.

The venue, located in the city's Design District, features a main music hall, lounge and outdoor patio.

“The Echo Lounge & Music Hall is going to be a great new venue for artists to play in Dallas,” said Michael Rapino, CEO of Live Nation Entertainment. “There are lots of opportunities to bring more concerts to the city, and we really value having the hometown partnership with Mark Cuban and the Mavericks in creating this space."

Cuban said, “This takes the Design District to the next level in its move towards being an entertainment destination. And with the tunnel between the American Airlines Center side and Design District side of the highway being finished, it will be an exciting post-game place to have fun and see live shows. Next time a ref throws me out of a game, I have a place to go.”

In addition, Live Nation, in collaboration with NS2, will be booking Charleston, S.C.’s 650-person-capacity Music Farm, which will reopen in 2022.

FPC Live, a joint venture between Live Nation and Frank Productions, will manage and operate the  club. The teams have already begun renovations and upgrades.
