The Phoenix Plaza Amphitheatre in Pontiac, Mich., is soliciting bids from promoters to take over booking at the 6,000-seat venue for this summer.
Bruce Zak of the city’s Downtown Development Authority told The Daily Oakland Press that a dozen promoters have been sent requests for bids.
The DDA planned to handle operational duties itself this summer and then hire a professional promoter for the 2006 season. However, officials decided this summer’s season was too much work for the DDA to handle by itself and that it is not too late to find a promoter for this year.
The shed reopened last fall after a two-year, $22 million renovation.
