SPAC Revamp

The amphitheatre at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., will have a new look when it reopens May 26th following $2.1 million in interior renovations.

Upgrades to the shed include an additional 200 seats – bringing the capacity to about 5,450 – new padding on existing seats, new lights, new acoustic sound panels, canvas rain screens and revamped rehearsal and dressing rooms, according to the Times Union of Albany.

The improvements are part of a $10 million, multiyear overhaul plan for the 41-year-old venue.

Concerts on the books through mid-August include the Honda Civic Tour, India.Arie, Tower of Power, Al Green, Rush, John Mayer, Kenny Chesney, The Moody Blues, and Dave Matthews Band.
