Live Nation has partnered with Graystone Quarry Events to take advantage of the 138-acre rock quarry site in Franklin, Tennessee, to create a new amphitheater. The 7,500-seat facility will open in 2020 with a full season of concert events produced by Live Nation.
Graystone Quarry has a rising profile as an upscale destination for weddings, corporate meetings, and private parties. The amphitheater will be positioned at the base of a limestone rock quarry surrounded by cliffs up to 100 feet tall. The reclaimed quarry was active 50 years ago, with the rock used in the construction of Highway 65 through Williamson County.
“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.”
“We envision this venue hosting some of the most popular touring groups coming to Nashville,” said 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.”
“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.”
