Anyone seen this? El Dorado is getting an 8k capacity amphitheater for concerts. Brad Paisley, Robert Randolph, Train, X-Ambassadors, ZZ Top, and more will be down here in September and October for the grand opening. Can't believe we're getting this.

The Rialto is being redone as a theater, music performance hall, and art gallery. Also will have new restaurants and a splash pad park for kids downtown.

I'm very excited about this and hope it starts to expand the boring south AR area soon!

This went over extremely well for South Arkansas! So excited to see what else this brings. Hopefully new stores, restaurants, hotels, concerts, etc.

Here in northwest MS, our town turned a stage and empty field into a 11,000 seat amphitheater and it has been a hit. If you want to keep it going, you must go to shows even if you aren't the biggest fan of the artist because production companies look at previous shows to see if it will sell enough tickets to make a profit. Our amphitheater is run exclusively by Green Machine Concerts - Green Machine Concerts | Home .

Do not expect any new stores, restaurants or hotels. A dozen concerts a year cannot support them. And we even have a dozen or so HUGE baseball tournaments during the summer and the hotel between the amphitheater and baseball park fell through.

A good production company will bring in better shows. The city tried running it for a few years and it was bad. Shows would sell 20% of the tickets if they were lucky. Sometimes they would land a big draw but not often. Now the shows are selling great but they are catering to the country and classic rock audiences most of the time.

Would that be the Snowden Grove Amphitheater?
