INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Plans are being considered to expand and upgrade the outdoor concert amphitheater at a state park in downtown Indianapolis.

Concert promoter Live Nation told the White River State Park commission on Thursday it would invest $10 million in the project

The proposal would expand the current 7,400-capacity amphitheater and put seating under a roof similar to Live Nation’s Klipsch Music Center the northern Indianapolis suburb of Noblesville.

Park executive director Bob Whitt tells The Indianapolis Star that Live Nation’s plan is bold but that the $10 million likely won’t cover the entire cost. The plans include a permanent stage and seating for 8,000 to 12,000 people.

Live Nation’s proposal comes a few weeks after another developer proposed an amphitheater for the site of a closed factory near the park.
