Jamboree Stage Upgrade

Ohio’s Jamboree In The Hills festival will have a new stage to break in during the event’s 30th anniversary this summer thanks to Live Nation.

The promoter is having the existing stage in Morristown replaced with a wider one, and is adding steel rafters and rigging in place of wooden beams in the barn-shaped building. The new facility will also feature a retractable stage door that can act as an awning when it rains, according to news station WTOV.

Local Live Nation GM Kelly Tucker-Jones told WTOV the wider stage will give concertgoers attending the July 13-16 country music festival better sight lines from the far right or left of the amphitheatre.

Tucker also said the company is hoping the new stage will attract other live acts to the area throughout the summer.

Scheduled to perform at this year’s Jamboree are Loretta Lynn, Brad Paisley, Montgomery Gentry, Carrie Underwood, and The Oak Ridge Boys, to name a few.
