The Acrisure Amphitheater which will hold 12,000 fans will be a part of the downtown landscape as well as a new soccer stadium that will be built in Grand Rapids just down the street. I wonder when all the Grand Rapids venues have an event going on the same night where everyone will park?

According to FOX17, the building of the amphitheater is expected to cost $184 million, and since it has taken so long for all the approvals on the funds the venue will not open in 2025 like it was previously reported but now the goal is to open in 2026. West Michigan will never have to leave this side of the state to see an artist once this venue is complete.
