Arizona Federal Credit Union announced today they are taking over the name-in-title of Live Nation’s Theatre located in the heart of downtown Phoenix. Formally known as Comerica Theatre, the venue will now be called Arizona Federal Theatre. The Theatre has presented some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry including David Bowie, Michael Buble, Robert Plant, Stevie Nicks, Janet Jackson, Alice Cooper, Tim McGraw, Ellen DeGeneres, Chelsea Handler, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Jay-Z, Maluma, Banda MS and Michelle Obama.
After 84 years of serving the financial needs of Valley families, Arizona Federal has broadened their strategy to serve the needs of small businesses through the recent acquisition of Pinnacle Bank. The Theatre and partnership with Live Nation provides a unique avenue to bring additional visibility to the Arizona Federal brand as they expand their services.
“We’re excited to add Live Nation to our growing list of partners, including Phoenix Rising, Arizona Humane Society, and The 100 Club of Arizona, among many others,” said Ronald Westad, president/CEO of Arizona Federal Credit Union. “Together we’re committed to creating a vibrant and active community here in the Valley.”
“It was clear from the first conversation we had with Arizona Federal Credit Union that they share in our commitment to deliver incredible experiences that bring the Phoenix community together,” said Andy Peikon, senior vice president of Live Nation venue sales operations. “With that in mind, we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with their team and infuse their voice into our powerful assets to help them connect with live music fans.”
The Theatre opened April 2002 with sold-out shows by Harry Connick Jr and Jerry Seinfeld. Unique design allows it to present large arena shows along with smaller intimate productions. Since it opened, the theatre has presented over 2,000 music, comedy, family and theatrical shows with over 4 million fans attending. Its versatility allows it to host private corporate events, graduations and Championship MMA & Boxing matches annually.
