The world’s largest live entertainment company is moving into Delaware’s largest city.
Live Nation Entertainment will take over management of Market Street’s historic Queen Theatre, replacing World Cafe Live, officials have exclusively revealed to The News Journal.
The arrival of the live music juggernaut at the end of the month could mean The Queen Theatre will draw bigger acts while targeting a younger demographic and radiating a big-city vibe.
“To us, we feel like the Queen is going to be somewhere between the Theatre of Living Arts and The Fillmore,” says Michael Grozier, Live Nation’s executive vice president of clubs and theatres. “The Queen is a great building and a great project, and we just hope to build on it. We’re going to try to bring the best shows we can down to Wilmington.”
