Tinley Park’s Music Venue Renamed & We Don’t Know How To Feel
Once again, Tinley Park's Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre is undergoing another name change and nobody really knows how to feel about it.
If you have never been to this music venue, let me just say it's freakin' gorgeous. In the summer when the sun is setting and your favorite artist is performing, you can't ask for a more perfect night.
Other than the look of the venue, fans are speaking out about the new name change.
Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre Renamed To Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre
Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre... how do you feel about the name?
Tons of fans took to Facebook and majority said they'll always remember it as World Music Theater. Could this be the last time the venue is renamed? Probably not.
"It will always by the World Music Theatre to me!!" - Tracy B.
"I still call it World Music Theater. Maybe just call it Tinley Park and not change the name all the time!" - Deborah M.
"Graduated HS on that stage! It'll always be The World to anyone who grew up going there." - Daryl L.
Since opening in 1990, there have been 6 different name changes to the venue.
"The Amphitheatre, which has a capacity of 28,000, was previously known as the World Music Theatre (1990-1995), New World Music Theatre (1995-2001), Tweeter Center (2001-2006), and First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre (2006-2015)." [wgntv]
Located in the Southwest suburbs of Chicago, Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre is hands down one of the best music venues in Illinois, and possibly America.
So many big names have played there like Elton John, Celine Dion, Bruno Mars, Imagine Dragons and even Drake! Who are you excited to see perform there next?
