Mesker May Go To Zoo

Mesker Amphitheatre in Evansville, Ind., will not open for the 2012 season, the city announced.

The 61-year-old shed is in poor condition and needs restoration, according to the Tri-State Herald. Mesker Park Zoo is reportedly interested in taking over operations of the building and proposed to rehab the facility, move the entrance and stage zoo

Demonstrations during the day, pending city review. The last concert box office reported from the 8,500-seat venue was a Doobie Brothers show in July 2009.
