Syracuse, N.Y. - Onondaga County is giving the legal approval to change the name of the Amphitheater.
The Onondaga County Legislature approved changing the name to the St. Joseph's Health Amphitheater at Lakeview. They also disclosed that St. Joe's is paying a total of $1.5 million for the naming rights for the next five years.
Half will go to the county while the other half will go to Live Nation, who runs the venue. Allowing the name change clears a legal hurdle to allow Live Nation to finalize the deal with St. Joe's.
