“We feel like a we have a great message, and we want to get that out,” Kevin Jones, president and chief executive officer of MIDFLORIDA Credit Union, based in Lakeland, said.

The venue opened in 2004 as the Ford Amphitheatre, then 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheatre and, for a short time, Live Nation Amphitheatre. Now the Tampa venue at the Florida State Fairgrounds bears the name of MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre.

“We are truly excited about the opportunity to bring the best possible entertainment we can,” said Jones. “We’re looking forward to a long relationship with Live Nation.”
