WALMART AMP

The Walmart AMP in Rogers will debut a $17.1 million expansion and renovation for its 2020 Cox Concert Series this summer!

“Walmart AMP 20/20” will accentuate the elements that make the AMP unique, like bringing in big names expected in larger markets while offering the amenities of a boutique venue.

Upgrades to the AMP will include an expanded box office making it easier for patrons to order and pick up tickets, a covered plaza on the AMP lawn, more concessions, and an overall capacity increase of 1,000 concert-goers.

Some of the big names coming to the AMP in June include Kenny Chesney, Alanis Morissette with Garbage & Liz Phair, Journey with the Pretenders, and Steely Dan & Steve Winwood. The Cox Concert Series includes 27 concerts this year, including The Avett Brothers on August 9, the Dave Matthews Band on Sept. 22 and Maven Morris on Oct. 9, among others!
