AEG Presents Announces Move to Nashville Yards
NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Southwest Value Partners and AEG, joint venture partners and co-developers of the Nashville Yards mixed-use district, featuring a 4,500-capacity music venue, announced today that AEG Presents, a global leader in concert promotion and artist development, will be relocating its regional office to Nashville Yards in 2025. As previously announced, AEG Presents will also be booking and operating the new music venue at the development, scheduled to open in early 2025.
AEG Presents’ new location will be in the distinctive Class A+ creative office building and be comprised of the company’s regional office, members of its Global Touring division, and the Nashville outpost of AEG Presents partner Messina Touring Group. The three entities combined oversee every element of the live music experience, from bookings at intimate clubs and theatres to arena and stadium tour dates, and promote tours for artists such as Kelsea Ballerini, Kane Brown, Zach Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Ed Sheeran, Blake Shelton, George Strait, and Carrie Underwood, among many others.
Said Rick Mueller, AEG Presents President, North America: “We've been hyper-focused on expanding our presence in Nashville for a few years now. It's a big opportunity for us to be consolidating all our operations under one roof at what's soon to be one of the most popular destinations in the city, and to be booking and operating a new, state-of-the-art music venue on-site makes it that much more exciting.”
Anchored by CAA, the creative office building is the first of its kind in Nashville. Showcasing an articulated metal façade with ultra-clear glazing, the layered floor plates allow outdoor private terraces on every floor. Adjacent to the new music venue, the building rises eleven stories above Church Street with large 40,000+ square foot floorplates, soaring ceiling heights, three levels of curated retail, dining, and entertainment along with best-in-class private amenities including meeting hubs, entertainment spaces, and a large outdoor vegetated deck overlooking Nashville Yards.
“We have an exceptional partnership with AEG, and together we believe we are constructing one of the most uniquely attractive music, retail and creative workplace environments in the world. Independent of that, AEG Presents is a preeminent entertainment brand and operator of world class entertainment venues, and we are very excited to have their extended presence at Nashville Yards,” said Cary Mack, managing partner of Southwest Value Partners.
Nashville Yards, a 19-acre mixed-use development celebrated for its thoughtful design and network of pedestrian pathways, open green spaces, and plazas, will include Class A+ office, residential, hospitality, entertainment, retail, and culinary offerings.
