Tweeter Name Comes Off Concert Venue
In a move that had been expected when Tweeter Home Entertainment Group filed for bankruptcy last summer, the “Tweeter Center” name has been removed from the concert venue in Camden, N.J., that has carried that name since 2001, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday.
The amphitheater, which is situated across the Delaware River from Philadelphia and hosts a well-attended outdoor concert series every summer, will now be known as the Susquehanna Bank Center, thanks to a $10 million naming rights deal with the Pennsylvania bank. Tweeter’s deal to have its name on the venue was supposed to run through 2011, but that contract was canceled when the company went into bankruptcy.
The Camden venue was one of three to carry the Tweeter Center name, with the others situated outside Boston and Chicago. The latter venue, in Tinley Park, Ill, has since been renamed the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, while the former, in Mansfield, Mass., is still called the Tweeter Center for the Performing Arts, pending a new naming rights deal.
