Virtual tour: What the Onondaga Lake Amphitheater will be like

The video is set to the song "Beautiful Day" by the band U-2, and is set on a stunning summer night in Central New York sometime in the future. It is the most in-depth look at what Onondaga County has planned for the western shore of Onondaga Lake.

The video was revealed for the first time at a public meeting on the project at Solvay High School Wednesday night. "This is being designed to be attractive to performers. We have learned through our research what they want, and what they need," County Executive Joanie Mahoney said.

The plans call for a 17,500 seat amphitheater with a second, smaller stage Mahoney says will be used for community theatre groups.
