First Onondaga Lake amphitheater concert booked

Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney will announce the first act to play at the newly constructed $50 million dollar amphitheater along the western shore line of Onondaga Lake.

The announcement will come Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. at the Fairgrounds, sources familiar with the planning say.

Construction on the new concert venue has been underway since March. There has been criticism of the ambitious construction schedule, and questions about whether an opening act could be booked before the end of The State Fair - when Mahoney promised the first concert would take place.

The exact date of the concert has not been revealed, but it will happen during this summer's run of The Fair.
