Notes Live has announced plans for a multi-million dollar public-private partnership to open The Sunset Music Colosseum on the River, an outdoor amphitheater and an adjacent indoor music venue and restaurant in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The venue is slated to open in 2023.
The Sunset Amphitheater will host large acts on a live music entertainment campus with amenities such as 32 firepit suites alongside stadium-style seating and lawn seating. The facilities will be located on the 18.2-acre city parcel located on the southeast corner of Medical Center Parkway and Gateway Boulevard.
The proposed $40 million music, entertainment and dining project also includes a Bourbon Brothers Smokehouse & Tavern, a casual dining restaurant with a high-quality tasting room, rooftop patio and a large outdoor patio with outdoor fireplaces.
An adjoining Boot Barn Hall will hold up to 1,400 people and will be modeled after Notes Live’s Boot Barn Hall in Colorado Springs, which quickly became one of Colorado’s premiere music venues after opening in February 2019. Notes Live expects to see approximately 800,000 patrons per year across Bourbon Brothers, Boot Barn Hall and the Sunset on the River.
“We are excited to announce another high-quality entertainment venture to our city featuring live music in both indoor and outdoor settings,” states Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland. “Providing final agreements are approved by Council, the amphitheater will be a public-private partnership adding a significant amenity to the area and elevating Murfreesboro in the Nashville music scene. As mayor, I am delighted, along with the City Council, to welcome Notes Live to Murfreesboro in making this substantial investment and we look forward to Notes Live contributing to the community in many ways.”
“I can’t tell you how excited we are to be full steam ahead in building our new Murfreesboro campus. We love Murfreesboro and plan to build one of the most luxurious music campuses in the country. We expect our live streaming and content strategy to make ‘Live from Murfreesboro’ a household name in every living room in America,” adds JW Roth, Notes Live Founder and CEO.
The company’s flagship 1,400 seat Boot Barn Hall is located in Colorado Springs. Another location is under construction outside of Atlanta, with plans to expand into Florida and Texas as well.
