ASM Global, provider of venue services and live experiences, has signed a five-year agreement with the Lyric Foundation for management of the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric is a not-for-profit performing arts centre that hosts a variety of music, dance, comedy, theatrical presentations, community and educational programming. Constructed in 1894, the Modell Lyric has been a cornerstone of the cultural community for more than 100 years.
The first show ASM Global has booked at the Lyric will be Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band. The show will take place on 16-17 June 2020 and will be presented by Outback Concerts.
“We are excited to welcome the Lyric to the ASM Global family of performing arts centres,” said Bob Newman, president and CEO of ASM Global. “We have a long and successful history in Baltimore at the Royal Farms Arena and more recently at MECU Pavilion. The Lyric further expands our portfolio in the region and complements the other two facilities, enabling us to better serve our patrons, promoters and partners in the area.”
“The Lyric Foundation conducted a thorough review which resulted in the selection of ASM Global as our theatre manager,” said John Denick, Lyric Foundation chair. “We are pleased to be working with ASM Global and feel that they understand the Lyric’s vision and mission. They represent a great opportunity for growth, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
