Virginia Beach Shed Just That

The Verizon Wireless Virginia Beach Amphitheatre no longer exists, at least not with that name.

The shed in Virginia Beach, Va., is now known as just Virginia Beach Amphitheatre.

This will be the first time the venue has been with out a naming rights sponsor since opening in 1996.

“Everyone is cutting back, and the first thing they’ll cut back is marketing and advertising,” city official Mark Wawner told the Virginia Pilot.

The amphitheatre was originally named GTE Virginia Beach Amphitheatre.
