lthough not set to open until 2022, officials at Enmarket Arena have just announced that tickets are now on sale for its first performer—country star Riley Green, who will take the stage with other well-known Georgia acts on Fri., Jan 14.
Officials with Oak View Group, the management company for the new arena, say the 9,500 seat building will bring top-notch touring musical acts, family shows, sporting events, trade shows, cultural and local festivals and graduations, and much more.
“With us only being four months away from opening, Oak View Group along with our partners City of Savannah, Live Nation, Pat Mathis Construction and Delaware North want everyone to start getting excited about all the great things the arena will be bringing to the community,” said Monty Jones Jr, Oak View Group general manager at Enmarket Arena.
An Alabama native who was raised on the sounds of traditional country, Bluegrass, and Southern gospel music, Riley Green was named 2020 ACM Awards New Male Artist of the Year, and is known for his musical storytelling and staying true to his country roots.
“Riley Green will be a great event for us to welcome everyone to in January and with this announcement today, expect many more big announcements to come in the upcoming weeks,” said Jones.
Green will bring his ‘We Out Here Tour’ to the Enmarket stage and will be joined by special guests Georgia’s own Corey Smith and Mike Ryan.
“We are thrilled to start announcing events. It has been a long time coming and we are very excited and proud of the caliber and diversity of events that Oak View Group and our partners will be able to bring to Savannah.”
With a vision to deliver a first-class entertainment destination to the Southeast, management says the new Enmarket Arena will bolster entertainment in Georgia and transform the downtown area of Savannah into a booming entertainment hub.
Inspired by Savannah’s historic charm, Enmarket Arena will boast 18 premium areas, two premium clubs, 12 suites, one party suite, and club seating for 725 people.
“The premium hospitality areas will be the first of its kind in Savannah and our guests here are going to be blown away by the spaces and amenities it will offer,” said Jones Jr.
“Guests can look forward to the best seats in the house, exclusive bars, great food, parking, the ability to attend every show and concert or hockey game based on their membership package. It will be an exciting, beautiful space for friends and family to have fun but will also be a new place to do business and entertain clients.”
In addition to live music and entertainment, Enmarket Arena is also set to expand sports in the region by introducing an East Coast Hockey League team as a tenant.
“We have a strong focus on being involved in the community so hosting events that will enrich Savannah is important to us,” said Jones Jr. “Enmarket Arena was a missing piece to Savannah and we’re ready to showcase all that it can be!”
