Stage AE is the second indoor/outdoor concert venue in America. Modeled after its predecessor, EXPRESS LIVE! in Columbus Ohio, Stage AE features state-of-the-art lighting, acoustical systems and an innovative reversible stage. Whether indoors or out, the venue can be divided into three independent concert spaces: indoor music hall, indoor club and outdoor amphitheater. With a capacity of 5,500 and available year-round for corporate functions, sporting events and private engagements, Stage AE’s industrial architecture and unique rock-n-roll ambiance is ideal for creating a high-energy atmosphere for any event. At the same time, the spacious multi-level facility is able to transform itself into a glamorous ballroom suitable for the most elegant events such as weddings, banquets, and formal charity dinners.
