Promenade Park concert series acts announced

Additional concerts will be announced in the coming weeks to complete the 2024 season, according to HB Concerts, Inc.

TOLEDO, Ohio — An “80s Rock Invasion” of musical acts and a beloved hip-hop artist are slated to perform at Promenade Park in July, in what organizer Hunter Brucks said in a press release will be the first among other show announcements later this year.

Flo Rida, the artist behind the song “Low,” will perform in Toledo on July 13, according to the release issued Monday by HB Concerts, Inc.

Less than a week later on July 19, five more musical acts will perform in a one-day, ’80s-themed concert:

  • Stephen Pearcy of Ratt
  • Great White
  • Slaughter
  • Steven Adler of Guns N’ Roses
  • Vixen

According to the press release, Promenade Park’s upcoming pavilion — Promenade Pavilion — will feature a total capacity of 7,966 people, including VIP areas and stadium-style reserved seating. HB Concerts also plans to offer food and beverage items at each event.

Additional concerts will be announced in the coming weeks to complete the 2024 season, according to the release.

HB Concerts said it recently obtained a permanent office space in downtown Toledo at 300 Madison Avenue, which will serve as the box office for in-person ticket sales and information inquiries. The office is open as of Monday, the management agency said.

HB Concerts provided the following map of what space the Promenade Pavilion, when completed, would occupy.

HBC Management team and HB Concerts, managed by Hunter Brucks, are leasing Promenade Park to put on a summer concert series. According to a study by ConnecToledo, it was estimated that a new amphitheater would cost $28.5 million to build and would require substantial public subsidy. There is, however, “substantial demand” to support up to an 8,000-seat venue that could be designed within an existing facility.

Brucks previously sought to construct an amphitheater off of U.S. 24 in Waterville. City Council meetings on the project brought residents and area business owners out in droves, passionately arguing for and against the project as Brucks pitched a major entertainment venue that would boost the city’s economy and draw crowds to the 6,000-resident city.

A judge eventually approved a conditional use permit for a Waterville property that was intended to house the controversial amphitheater project, but Brucks was no longer interested and turned his attention to downtown Toledo.

Toledo City Council in October approved handing over the reins of the summer concert series to Brucks, who Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz said is on the hook for at least 10 concerts.
