Fiddler’s Green Returns

The Coors Amphitheatre in Englewood, Colo., has returned to its roots and its former name, Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre, now that Coors Brewing Company has ended a sponsorship with Live Nation.

The shed’s name first changed in 2004 when Coors and House of Blues, which previously owned and operated the 16,823-capacity shed, expanded their relationship.

At press time, Pollstar was unable to contact a Fiddler’s Green representative as to whether the venue seeks a new sponsorship or if the name change would stick.

The original name, which the Oxford American Dictionary defines as a sailor’s heaven that’s "traditionally a place of wine, women and song," was given to the venue by the Museum of Outdoor Arts, a nonprofit that owns the land the shed occupies, according to the Rocky Mountain News.

Coors Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, Calif., was also affected and is now the Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre, per Live Nation and Cricket Communication’s new naming-rights deal.
