LA JOLLA (CNS) - UC San Diego announced on Wednesday an exclusive agreement with a Los Angeles company to produce concerts at the school's RIMAC Arena and adjacent 12-acre field.
The five-year agreement with Nederlander Concerts has already resulted in the booking of two concerts, Rise Against and Bad Religion on April 8 in the arena, which has a capacity of 4,741.
Sugarland is set to play July 23 on the field, which can accommodate 20,000 people.
"This partnership with Nederlander Concerts will enhance student life and elevate UC San Diego's reputation as a source for arts and live entertainment of the highest quality," said Gary Ratcliff, assistant vice chancellor for student life.
"Over the years, RIMAC Arena and Field have hosted a variety of well-known music artists. We are excited about the potential of increasing the number of live shows in these venues through our
partnership with Nederlander Concerts."
The agreement will also provide internship opportunities for students.
Nederlander Concerts has produced Bob Dylan, Incubus, Jack Johnson and the Foo Fighters, Robin Williams and John Legend, among others at UCSD in the past.
