Couple Buys Ozark Amphitheatre

The Stoneridge Amphitheatre – a shuttered venue in Camdenton, Mo. – has been bought by a local entrepreneurial couple who expect to relaunch the 15,500-capacity shed next spring.

Tony and Lisa Ann Oddo, who reopened an exotic animal attraction near Springfield, have big plans for the shed, according to the Springfield News-Leader. The venue has also been known as the Lake Ozarks Amphitheatre.

“With the new name comes a new vision,” Tony Oddo told the paper. “We envision using this amazing 15,500-seating amphitheatre, 77 acres and parking for 7,000 cars, as a hub for entertainment and events for the whole lake region and we are committed, as well as excited, to making that happen.”

Oddo did not return phone calls at press time, but a venue spokeswoman told Pollstar efforts are already being made to bring music to the shed come spring.
