So, by now you should have heard somewhere on Pittsburgh media how S & T Bank has become the newest outfit to acquire the naming rights to the outdoor amphitheater in Burgettstown, PA. What you may have missed is what that means to S & T customers and employees that may make you rethink your banking choices.
On Sat., Jan. 4th Live Nation and S & T Bank hosted a press event at Cinemark Robinson Theater to announce that the amphitheater, formerly known as KeyBank, or Post Gazette, or Coca Cola, but always lovingly called Star Lake by ‘Burghers, is now S & T Music Park. A lot of changes are in the early planning stages but nothing has a specific timeline on it (and yes I asked about the screens and that is a top priority to look at). What music lovers can count on are some perks if they do any banking with S & T.
The Uniontown, PA-based bank announced that customers and employees will have access to pre-sale tickets with no fees (and we all know those fees can certainly add up), as well as entry into the S & T Entertainment Lounge, free lawn chairs, and more to come. The ability to rack up a $30-$40 fee is certainly an incentive to open an account along with treating customers like VIP’s.
Lots of shows have been announced already including Jimmy Buffet, Rascall Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Ozzy with Marilyn Manson, Maroon 5 with Meghan Trainor, Journey and The Pretenders, Chicago and Rick Springfield, The Black Crowes, The Doobie Brothers, and KISS with David Lee Roth. We expect much more to come with the total of shows a few more than last year’s events. (check out www.livenationentertainment.com)
In addition, S & T Bank will be launching a financial literacy program where students from local schools will learn about the music business from Live Nation employees, financial planning, investing for the future, and how to start and run a business. In addition, when possible, the students will also get to attend a show.
The press event itself was a great event with all the Live Nation and S & T bigwigs in attendance. A KISS impersonator duo took pictures with everyone and played a two-song set dressed as Ace and Gene. Attendees were treated with concessions, some S & T swag, and a private viewing of Jumanji 2.
See you at the opener for the season June 11 with Ozzy Osbourne and Marilyn Manson
