TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) -- The Tuscaloosa Amphitheater is putting West Alabama on the map for entertainment. Looking back, it’s brought big-name artists like Phish and Jack Johnson to its stage. And there is a lot to look forward to at the venue.
Here are the shows that will be at the amphitheater this year:
- Tedeschi Truck Band - June 30th
- Jason Aldean - July 25th
- Keith Urban - August 26th
- Odesza - October 9th
Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox is a big fan of the performance space.
“You got the Black Warrior River, you got the old train trestle, and you got great music,” said Maddox. “It’s a perfect place to come enjoy an evening.”
Not only are the shows drawing big crowds to Tuscaloosa, the venue is sparking economic growth for the city.
“You see nearly a $75 million worth of development in and around the amphitheater,” said Maddox. “It certainly has made a great economic and community investment for Tuscaloosa.”
