The board of the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex has awarded a $46.1 million contract to Stone Building LLC to build a new amphitheater near Protective Stadium.

“This is a critical milestone for this project,” said Tad Snider, the CEO of the BJCC. “We are excited to work with Stone Building as we witness the transformation and unveiling of the amphitheater, adding a new attraction to benefit our community.”

The amphitheater, projected to open in June 2025, will be owned by the BJCC and operated by Live Nation.

“This will round out the venues available at the BJCC, and it will complement the other investments that have been made in our facilities and in north Birmingham,” Snider said. “The amphitheater will benefit our local residents, but it will also bring people to Birmingham who will stay in our hotels, eat in our restaurants and shop in our stores.”

The amphitheater will be part of the Star Uptown redevelopment of the former Carraway hospital site.
