Bold Sphere Music coming to Champions Square

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - City leaders introduced what's being called, "Bold Sphere Music" in Champions Square.

It's basically a re-designed outdoor amphitheater meant to enhance the enjoyment during musical acts on a brand new state-of-the-art stage.

A concert series will kick-off in August.

Jack Owen, a country music vocalist, will be the first performer in concert on Aug. 23. The outdoor venue will be able to hold between 6,500 and 9,000 people.

Many are hoping it will be a place for locals and tourists to enjoy what New Orleans has to offer.

It's the most ambitious non-sports initiative yet for Champions Square.
