Dodgers Partner With Entertainment Firm to Bring Concerts to the Stadium
The music reverberating though Chavez Ravine this season won’t necessarily be “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers have formed a partnership with entertainment executive Tim Leiweke and music industry veteran Irving Azoff to attract major bands to Dodger Stadium.
Their goal is to bring a handful of concerts to the ballpark each year, part of a multiyear deal between team owners and Oak View Group, the recently formed entertainment venture between Leiweke and Azoff. The pair hope to book two to three concerts this year at Dodger Stadium, and then increase the number in subsequent years if they can work around the scheduling needs of the baseball team and its home games.
The Dodgers, owned by Guggenheim Baseball Management, jumped at the opportunity to work with Leiweke and Azoff, who were eager to pitch the ballpark to music promoters.
