King County, AEG Live forge partnership for Marymoor Park Concert Series

King County has selected nationally recognized AEG Live to manage the talent booking and operations of the Marymoor Park Concert Series beginning with the 2013 season.

“Forming this partnership with one of the largest concert promoters in the world will bring some of the best talent in the world to local audiences, while generating revenue that helps support public access to King County Parks,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine.

“I am excited to partner with King County and continue the Marymoor Park Concert Series at this incredible venue,” said Alex Kochan, Vice President of AEG Live Pacific Northwest regional office. “The addition of the Marymoor Park Concert Series to our roster is a natural fit because we already produce over 400 shows in the region annually.”

AEG Live will bring between 12 and 15 events to Marymoor Park each year from June through September. The first shows and dates are expected to be announced in spring.

King County’s Marymoor Park is a regional landmark that features the beautiful Willowmoor Farm historical district and Clise Mansion. The park’s natural and scenic environment makes the 5,000-capacity outdoor venue home to Seattle's best open-air concert series. Plus, it’s only a 15-minute trip from downtown Seattle to enjoy the best intimate concert experience around.

AEG Live’s regional office currently oversees all booking and operations for the two Showbox venues (the 1,150-capacity Showbox at the Market and the 1,800-capacity Showbox SoDo) and books/produces all concerts at WaMu Theater and for the Washington State Fair Series. The office also supports all AEG Live national tours and one-offs in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and British Columbia.

Marymoor Park Concert Series tickets will be available though AEG Live’s ticketing company, AXS.com. Marymoor Park Concert Series will offer reserved seats, VIP boxes, and general admission lawn seating; providing a variety of ticket price options for concert-goers.

VIP and season ticket holders will be able to immerse themselves in the full concert experience with access to luxury services including VIP parking, VIP/artist reception area, and first-class pre show dining options.
