Our name is now Providence Medical Center Amphitheater

THE LEGENDARY AMPHITHEATER TO UNVEIL MAJOR CHANGES IN 2016

NEW NAMING RIGHTS SPONSOR, MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR RENOVATIONS


Providence Medical Center is the new naming rights sponsor for the former Cricket Wireless Amphitheater located in Bonner Springs, Kansas, now known as Providence Medical Center Amphitheater. Providence Medical Center, with its award winning care and state-of-the-art emergency services, has been a Wyandotte County institution since 1920. The hospital, once a member of the Sisters of Charity Leavenworth Health System, was acquired in 2013 by Prime Healthcare Services. Providence is located five miles east of the amphitheater at Parallel and 90th Street.

“We couldn’t be happier to announce this partnership with another long-time Wyandotte County institution,” said Kathleen Conwell, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Providence. “Providence Medical Center is proud to be part of the revitalization of another community icon.”

In addition, the landmark venue will undergo a multi-million dollar remodel that will be complete when the amphitheater kicks off its 2016 season in May.

The renovations include:
• New reserved seating
• Upgrades to the stage
• Improvements to the backstage, catering, and dressing rooms
• Remodeled merchandise stands, concession stands and restrooms
• A complete VIP Club renovation with multimedia centers
• New walkways, landscaping and many other aesthetic updates

The amphitheater has a long history in Kansas City as one of the city’s most beloved venues; thousands of acts and millions of fans have been to the amphitheater over the course of its 30-plus-year history. The facility is one of the largest music venues in the state.

“The amphitheater has always had a great layout, a wonderful atmosphere and incredible sound. The renovations will make the venue a state-of-the-art facility for both fans and artists” says Chris Fritz, President of New West Presentations, the operator of the amphitheater.

DARE Festival 2009


Capitol Federal Park @ Sandstone hosted the annual DARE Festival on May 14, 2009. Celebrating the accomplishments of 3000 students, the house was rocking with enthusiasm. Students from two states, 50 plus schools and 10 counties filled the amphitheater to enjoy music, bands and entertaining speakers.

Starting the festival with the Pledge of Allegiance, students stood proud as they placed their hand across their heart. Visiting speakers included several local police officials and state officials congratulating the students on their success in completing the DARE program. Retro Bill however was the star of the show. With his wacky looks and entertaining style, Retro Bill kept the kids attention throughout the day, introducing other performers and reminding the kids how important it is to say no to drugs and alcohol.

Supporting local talent, several police officials formed a cover band and had the kids off their feet rushing to the stage. The young band Clever by Accident also performed and became local celebrities in 15 minutes, signing autographs for a long time after their set. Also joining the list was country performer Christy Crook, dancing group Power and Life, Disney's Jordan Pruitt and rapper Alan Bradley. Every artist brought something to the days success; words of wisdom, talented lyrics and energy.

All students were very helpful in placing trash in its respective places and also helped the staff of Cap Fed Park continue our green initiatives and chose to place their plastic bottles and soda cans in the recycle bin instead of the trash can. When I asked one Bonner Springs student if he was having fun, he told me this was the best day ever. We hope the students will join us again next year for another successful DARE Festival.

Earth Day


The Capital Federal Park at Sandstone and dozens of other sponsors
teamed up with Bridging The Gap at their 13th Annual Earth Walk /
Earth Fest in Kansas City's scenic Theis Park on May 9th, 2009.

Earth Day in America is a celebration of the achievements of the
environmental movement's 30 years and the challenges that remain:
Black smoke may no longer pour from city stacks, nor sludge foul our
riversides, but less visible forces such as climate change and
population growth still mark the distance between present-day America
and a sustainable society.

It is that very reason for which Bridging the Gap demonstrates how
such a growing global problem can be simplified by solutions
implemented on a individual level. Suitably, the focus of this year's
festival was five specific actions that everyone in Kansas City can do
to reduce CO2 emissions and clean up our community:

1) Give up bottled water
2) Wash your laundry in cold water
3) Switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs
4) Set your thermostat to 68 degrees in winter; 78 degrees in summer
5) Cut your gasoline use by one quarter

Making these changes will reduce a household's emissions by at least
4,000 pounds, that's over 15 percent! As if that wasn't motivation
enough, participants at this year's Earth Fest had a chance to win
free tickets to upcoming concerts throughout the metro area by
reciting a pledge of dedication to these five green things. The
Capital Federal Park at Sandstone thanks local promoters and partners,
Mammoth Live and Up To Eleven, for their generous support and the free
ticket giveaways!

Joined by a new accumulation of knowledge and tools of change, there
was a ubiquitous sense of community amongst attendees; the comradeship
was palpable. In the end, proving that Kansas City truly is a socially
and environmentally responsible community that encourages coming
together to work towards common goals to benefit the planet.

The achievements of both the Capital Federal Park at Sandstone's Green
Initiatives and Bridging the Gap's Earth Walk / Earth Fest demonstrate
that global climate change can be supplemented by meaningful
improvements in education and technology. We strongly believe that
the environmentalist majority has a fighting chance at success!

The New “Up Close and Personal” General Admission Section

Sandstone GACapitol Federal Park at Sandstone developed a new view on the fan experience with their new "up close and personal" general admission section. Eighteen rows of the previous seating area has been removed to allow for fans to receive a festival atmosphere experience. The fan that would typically purchase a lawn ticket will now have a chance to enjoy the show from the once precious front row seats. Ten rows of seats remain in the lower GA section. These are on a first come, first serve basis.

On some shows the lower GA section will be regulated by wristbands for the first 5,000 patrons to arrive at the lower section, but this is on a show by show basis. We do not encourage nor allow camping at the venue gates or surrounding streets. For those interested in the blanket on the lawn atmosphere, this is still available and is purchased as a general admission ticket as well.

We believe that this change is a positive one. It opens the flow of the park and allows for the laid back atmosphere we hope to achieve.
