KC Music Hall Joins The Nation

Live Nation has finalized a seven-year contract for subsidiary Pace Theatrical Group to book touring Broadway shows at the 2,400-seat Kansas City Music Hall beginning in 2007.

Non-profit group Theater League booked the city-owned hall for 15 years, according to the Kansas City Star. The KC City Council authorized the contract with little debate.

City officials hope a $14 million facelift in progress will allow the hall to host the most elaborate shows, the paper said.
