It’s time!  Please mark your calendars now and join me for the grand reopening ceremony of our newly-enhanced BankPlus Amphitheater on Thursday, April 20 at 2:00 PM at the top of the bowl (back/west stairway entrance).  At 7:00 PM later that evening, we will try out our new “digs” as Better Than Ezra performs with Sister Hazel and Ingram Hill.  Tickets go on sale on Friday, March 10 at 10:00 AM at the following link:  This event will truly be GRAND as we kickoff the weekend of our Springfest celebration!


The City of Southaven made the decision in 2021 to delay concerts as we made a tremendous investment into our facility to modernize it for the purpose of bringing bigger, better, and more entertainment acts to our venue!  It’s now time to celebrate as we’re finally back with a great concert lineup for this season!


Come enjoy a better concert experience!


Our facility now has increased permanent seating capacity from 3,900 to approximately 9,865 (10,288 total), still leaving a small artificial grassy area; doubled bathroom capacity; new concession buildings on the west and south sides with new gate entrances; an air-controlled lounge with interior and exterior seating; new premium boxes for group seating including terrace tables; a commissary for better and faster food and beverage distribution; a café for the artists; a new merchandise sales canopy near the main entrance; and improved convenience and security at all entrances.


Meet you out here!
