Paragon To Book Austin’s Belmont
The Belmont is an indoor/outdoor venue in downtown Austin, sporting the recent addition of tiers in the mezzanine level and newly remodeled interiors. It offers a “industrial skyline” view and ivy-covered courtyard. It was recently an “official” South By Southwest venue, hosting events sponsored by Google, SyFy, NBC, and Comcast featuring artists including John legend, Ludacris, Lil Jon, soul Asylum and Too $hort.
Over the years, it has presented artists including Sleigh Bells, Kanye West, Incubus, Paramore, Tove Lo, Ghostland Observatory, Tegan and Sara, Fitz and the Tantrums, Flaming Lips, Jason Isbell and many more.
Paragon Presents is a joint venture between Nederlander Concerts and TAG Presents. It also operates the nearby Statesman Skyline Theater at the Long Center.
“The Belmont is a perfect fit for our vision of producing fan-centric experiences, while enhancing Austin’s music scene. It is an ideal showroom to host great live entertainment focused on artists from a variety of genres who have existing fan bases, or emerging artists who will gain valuable exposure in this market,” said Paul Thornton, president of Paragon Presents.
“This extends our investment in Austin and aligns our goals of growing Nederlander’s brand nationally,” said Nederlander CEO Alex Hodges. “We look forward to working with the newly remodeled Belmont and fostering our partnership with Paragon Presents.”
The Belmont operated as a restaurant before its sale a repurposing as a concert venue in 2012.
