AC Entertainment Acquires Great Big Shows

aeKnoxville-based AC Entertainment, co-creator of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, has announced that it has acquired Nashville-based concert promotion company Great Big Shows. The new partnership will strengthen AC Entertainment’s Nashville presence and expand its resources for event creation, management and production nationwide. The relationship between the two entertainment companies began when Rick Whetsel, owner of Great Big Shows, approached AC Entertainment founder Ashley Capps about booking a major event for him in Washington D.C. In turn, Capps enlisted Great Big Shows to handle production management for one of his events. Since then the two companies have collaborated on both big and small events. The first major Nashville event to be announced under the new venture is a co-headliner concert featuring the Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic at Riverfront Park on October 14, 2009.   Tickets go on sale Friday, April 17.
