Saint Louis Music Park is ready to spring to life.

After the pandemic shutdown of all entertainment venues for the last year the opening season at St. Louis Music Park took a huge hit, as did all other established venues, closing down before it even got off the ground.

Established as a quaint 4,500 seat venue for acts to play as opposed to the massive 20,000 seat venue that sits right next door in the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, acts who would have to struggle to fill the larger venue can feel more at home in the newer, cozier venue. All while giving the fans as well as the band a feeling of a more intimate vibe and connection with each other.

If you didn’t already know Saint Louis Music Park is a multipurpose outdoor concert venue which is part of the Centene Community Ice Center (the official practice facility of the St. Louis Blues) located in Maryland Heights, MO.

Located as part of the covered outdoor ice arena, Saint Louis Music Park will make the seasonal transition from skating rink to concert venue for the summer season. The venue features covered pavilion seating, a beer garden, an all-weather lawn, and a lake providing guests a park setting.

Saint Louis Music Park will host an exclusive first look event on Friday, July 16 featuring The Rolling Stones tribute band, Street Fighting Band. A limited number of general admission tickets are $10 each and are on sale now at livenation.com.

Many great shows were scheduled for the venue last year but were forced to cancel due to the pandemic. Thankfully, Live Nation, which runs it, was able bring back many of the shows, and then some. Among the highlights for this season include Fogging Molly‘s kick off for their return tour to North America September 3, Primus performing the Rush classic A Farewell To Kings in its entirety, along with their own music September 14, Brett Eldredge September 23, Judas Priest September 25, and Alice Cooper October 2, along with many more. (See below for full schedule)

Tickets purchased for the shows last year, if rescheduled, will be honored for the new show dates.
