RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – The Show, Southern California’s premier concert theatre located at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage, has been nominated “Best New Major Concert Venue” by Pollstar Magazine.
The nomination is a monumental achievement for The Show, which opened its doors in February with a star-studded concert series featuring Matchbox Twenty and Martina McBride, among others. The venue is one of only five facilities in the nation to be nominated.
“This is a fantastic day for us,” said Steve Macfadyen, director of entertainment at The Show and concert industry veteran. “For The Show to be nominated for such a prestigious award in its first nine months of operation is an enormous accomplishment, but well deserved. Our team has put together a world class venue with first class amenities for guests and artists alike. I believe we truly have one of the finest concert theatres in the country.”
The 2009 Pollstar Concert Industry Awards will be held Feb. 17, 2010 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
Several hundred randomly selected concert industry executives participate in the nomination process. The nominations are tallied, and those concert venues with the most votes are placed on the final ballot. Pollstar subscribers are then invited to vote online, with the winners announced live at the awards show in February.
