Cheap Train

That Live Nation is selling Sleep Train Amphitheatre near Sacramento, Calif., may not be surprising but its sale price is.

Live Nation is asking $2.7 million for the site, county spokesman Ross Brown told the Appeal-Democrat, a significant markdown if the county reassesses the property’s value at $7 million.

“The reality is the dirt out there is worth more” than the amphitheatre, Brown told the paper.

Sleep Train is 10 years old and fashioned after Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. The shed’s season will continue unabated.
