Desert Sky Pavilion announces name change
Desert Sky Pavilion announced on Tuesday that it has been renamed.
The facility has changed its name yet again and will now be known as the "Ak-Chin Pavilion." The new name is part of a partnership between Live Nation and the Ak-Chn Indian Community.
"We couldn't be happier to enter into this marketing relationship with the Ak-Chin Indian Community at our premier live entertainment venue in Phoenix," said Maureen Ford, president of Live Nation's Venue Network, in a press release.
"The Ak-Chin Indian Community has long standing roots in Arizona and have always believed that investing in our community is the right thing to do," said Ak-Chin Tribal Chairman Louis J. Manuel, Jr., in a press release. "We are excited about this partnership with Live Nation and working together to bring quality live entertainment to the Valley."
In its past, the Ak-Chin Pavilion has been known as the Blockbuster Desert Sky Pavilion, the Cricket Pavilion, the Cricket Wireless Pavilion and the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion.
Ak-Chin Pavilion seats 20,000 people.
