The Harveys Outdoor Arena first opened on July 7th, 1992. At that time the venue held roughly 5,000 concert goers. In 2005 the former owner, Harrah’s Entertainment, hired a San Francisco based promoter, Another Planet Entertainment, for operations and event bookings. When they launched the new concert series, the venue was moved to the back parking lot, it’s current location. With the move, they were able to increase capacity from 5,000 to 9,300.
