MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. — A new concert venue is coming to St. Louis County. The 4,500-seat outdoor concert venue in Maryland Heights is part of the new Centene Community Ice Center, the practice home of 2019 Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues.

But once temperatures start warming up, they’ll be turning up the volume on the Saint Louis Music Park.

Several national music acts will help open the new concert venue on May 25, 2020. Kesha and special guest Big Freedia will be playing the first show. The Struts, Barenaked Ladies, David Gray, Michael Stanley, and many more acts are on the schedule for the rest of the debut season.

“Out in this area will be a 2,400-seat grandstand, with over 1,400 of those seats covered by the roof, so you’ll have 1,000 seats exposed to the elements but, by and large, 3,400 out of your 4,400 people are going to be undercover,” said Patrick Quinn, chairman of the St. Louis Legacy Ice Foundation.

Saint Louis Music Park will transform from skating rink to the concert venue for the spring and summer season. There is covered pavilion seating, a beer garden, an all-weather artificial lawn, and a lake providing guests a park-like setting. Funding for the project came from public and private money.

LiveNation has made a commitment to bring 20 or more concerts a year to the new amphitheater here. And in addition to the concerts, LiveNation says the venue will host community events, food and beer festivals, family entertainment, and a variety of children’s programming.
