On January 2, 2018, it was announced that downtown concert venue Regency Live had been bought out by The Complex. The Complex has concert venues in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Salt Lake City, Utah, and has now made its way to 417-land.
“Given the music tradition in the midwest and the rich history of 307 Park Central East, it was a natural next step for us as we look to expand our footprint” says Steve Loso, marketing director for The Complex. “We’re excited about the opportunity Springfield brings and look forward to being an integral part of its music future.”
The layout of The Complex will stay the same for now, but redesigning of the sound and lighting packages are in the works.
The Complex currently has hip hop, EDM, rock and funk bands lined up like the Grateful Dead Experience: The Schwag, Yung Pinch, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Tech N9ne and more.
“We’re focused on live music,” Loso says. “We are excited to bring all types of musical acts and look forward to announcing more and more acts in the coming months.”
The grand opening of The Complex is February 23, headlined by EDM star Deorro.
“Our goal is to provide an environment where a fan can create an everlasting memory with their favorite artist,” Loso says. “We're so honored to be a part of Springfield’s music scene and are excited to curate these experiences for the city.”
