Having more than doubled in size since plans were reviewed by the public and approved by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors last March, the now 9,000 seat amphitheater to be built upon Piers 27-29 for the 34th America’s Cup is set to be rubber stamped by San Francisco’s Entertainment Commission.
From the commission’s executive director Jocelyn Kane by way of the Chronicle: “It’s already been approved by the city, so there really isn’t much for us to do except work on how loud or how long the concerts will go.”
The amphitheater on Piers 27-29 will host the opening and closing ceremonies for the Cup later this year and as many as 40 concerts in-between.
