Maryland’s Live! Casino & Hotel is gearing up to open a new entertainment venue later this month.
The new concert space, dubbed The Hall at Live!, will debut with soft openings on December 26 with a performance from Kristen & The Noise, followed by a gig from Charm City Devils on December 29. On New Year’s Eve, the venue will officially open to the public with “It’s a Sweet New Year” bash. The three-story tall space is 75,000-square-feet and can hold about 1,800 people dining-in-the-round, Cordish Gaming Group President Rob Norton told WTOP, noting that it will also be able to hold 4,800 people at max-capacity for an entertainment event. On the other hand, the venue is scalable, allowing acts with a smaller crowd to occupy the space.
“The way we built the venue allows us to be extremely flexible to be able to match the artist or private event,” Norton said.
At this time, a handful of artists have been announced to play the venue in 2020, including Gabriel Iglesias, Patti LaBelle, Squeeze, Josh Gorban, and O.A.R. While only comedians and singers have been announced at this time, Norton told WTOP that boxing and MMA Events are slated to take place at The Hall, along with parties for championship games like the NFL Super Bowl or NCAA March Madness while streaming the games on a giant video screen.
Like D.C.’s The Anthem, The Hall is curved, allowing all seats to have a “great angle” of the stage, Norton said, explaining that “there isn’t a bad seat in the house.”
