Casino Del Sol AVA Amphitheater gets makeover

24 April 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Sol of Tucson and Southern Arizona’s premier entertainment destination, Casino Del Sol, has announced that its award-winning concert venue, Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheater (AVA) has undergone a renovation, and is better than ever, just in time for the 2018 concert season.

An expansive, yet intimate, concert and event venue, AVA seats approximately 5,000 people in covered seating and on the lawn, offering perfect sight lines from every angle. Concert goers will now have easier access to the venue’s two beer gardens. The walls that separated the beer garden area from the seating area have been removed, opening the gardens for an improved beverage experience. Furthermore, to help alleviate long lines at concessions, AVA’s electronic payment infrastructure has been upgraded so that payments can be processed at hyper-speed. By mid-season, even more attendees will be able to enjoy world-class entertainment, as 280 additional reserved seats will be installed.

The new-and-improved AVA Amphitheater is ready to welcome guests to its 17th season. The first half of the concert lineup is listed below, and it is just the beginning. Stay tuned for additional acts to be announced in the coming weeks.

“We are excited to welcome concert goers to see first-hand the improvements we have made at AVA to enhance their experience,” said Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol. “For the 17th year, world-renowned musicians will again grace the AVA stage, and we can’t wait for guests to experience amazing live music in our improved facility.”

To purchase tickets, visit the casino's website or call 1-855-SOL-STAY (765-7829).

AVA Amphitheater is committed to the safety of all guests, and AVA’s clear bag policy will remain in effect. This limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the venue. Bags that are clear plastic or vinyl and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”; one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags; and small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, after being searched will be allowed. These changes are intended to increase the safety of guests and the speed at which guests are admitted into the venue.
