Texas Showplace, Grand Prairie, TX

The Theatre at Grand Prairie is a concert hall located in Grand Prairie, Texas, 16 miles west of Dallas and 24 miles east of Fort Worth. It is near Lone Star Park and AirHogs Stadium. The theatre is currently operated by AEG and owned by the City of Grand Prairie. The theatre was proposed in 1998 as an alternative to the now demolished Reunion Arena in Dallas. Owned by NextStage Entertainment Corporation, the theatre was built in Grand Prairie to boost the economy of the city and lead to possible tourism. Construction began in the summer of 1999, however, it was delayed 14 months due to an increase in budget. The final construction cost was about $63 million. Originally known as "Texas ShowPlace", the venue was meant to house concerts and theatrical performances for the Dallas–Fort Worth area. The theatre opened in February 2002 as the "NextStage Performance Theater" with a capacity of 6,300. In 2004, Nokia Corporation purchased the naming rights to the theatre for six years, changing its title to "Nokia Live at Grand Prairie". In February 2010, Verizon Wireless acquired naming rights for ten years, changing the title to the "Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie".
