PromoWest Goes East - Introducing Stage AE
PromoWest is proud to announce the opening of America’s second indoor & outdoor concert venue, Stage AE, a state-of-the-art concert and special event facility located next to Heinz Field. Developed by PromoWest Productions, the venue is modeled after the 8-year-old Lifestyle Communities Pavilion in Columbus Ohio’s downtown Arena District. The facility will be similar in appearance, acoustics and management to our Columbus facility yet designed specifically for the North Shore. The facility's indoor capacity is 2400 general admission and 1200 with reserved seating. The facility's outdoor capacity is 5500 general admission and 3400 with reserved seated orchestra pit and general admission lawn. The indoor portion of the facility is planned at 22,305 square feet on the main floor and 13,931 square feet on the second floor.
The facility is strategically designed as Stage AE and will consist of five independent spaces. Each space is customized for specific size capabilities that will offer the ability to host all levels of musical performers and special events: • Indoor Club – 300 capacity • Main Outdoor Plaza – 750 capacity • Indoor Music Hall (main floor) – 1500 capacity • Indoor Music Hall (main floor & balcony) – 2400 capacity • Outdoor Amphitheater – 5500 capacity The facility will be open year round hosting a minimum of 60 indoor events and 35 outdoor events. Because the facility will also contain a small club, we believe these projections to be very conservative.
There will be an additional 18 events each year as a result of Pittsburgh Steeler game day events and Pittsburgh Panther game days. Projected attendance will be between 200,000 and 230,000 people annually. The indoor season is booked throughout the year with the outdoor season scheduled from May through September.
The facility will offer a variety of music from some of the biggest names in rock, country, blues, folk, reggae, classic rock, metal, punk, alternative and everything in between. Special features include two levels of corporate reserved box suites, exclusive VIP Lounge and three VIP rooms reserved for band appearances and special VIP promotions. The facility may be reserved for special event and private rentals such as conferences, corporate parties, sports banquets, fundraisers, galas, expos, high school proms, holiday parties, weddings and formal receptions.
