SaveLive, the platform founded in 2020 to work with independent venue owners and promoters, announced two new exclusive venue partnerships. Eagles Entertainment Inc, founded by Joe Balestrieri and Leslie West, joins the SaveLive network with their iconic collection of live performance spaces which include the historic Eagles Ballroom, Rave and The Rave II in Milwaukee, WI. Additionally, The Fremont Theater in San Luis Obispo is the newest live music venue in California to become part of SaveLive’s network of partners.
Through this new partnership with Eagles Entertainment, the jewel of Wisconsin, the SaveLive network continues to grow their presence in the Midwest. The Eagles Entertainment building houses six individual spaces including the 4000 capacity Eagles Ballroom, which features a 25,000 square foot wooden dance floor surrounded by a second-floor balcony. Those gracing the stage of the ballroom include Bad Bunny, Coldplay, Luke Combs, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Slayer, and hundreds of other platinum selling artists. The second largest performance space in the complex is the Rave with a capacity of 1800 and features a wraparound balcony with incomparable sight lines. The Milwaukee complex has been the site of early-in-their-career live performances from Tyler the Creator, Travis Scott, Soundgarden, Mac Miller, Olivia Rodrigo, Jane’s Addiction, Nirvana, Dave Matthews Band, and Pearl Jam to name a few. The scalable space also allows for presenting the music of the diverse Milwaukee community.
The Fremont Theater in downtown San Luis Obispo is a 900 capacity, beautifully renovated 1942 movie theater. Known for its colorful Streamline Moderne neon marquee, the Fremont has hosted artists such as Yes, Lyle Lovett, and Brandi Carlile in its long history.
“We are beyond thrilled to be partnering with SaveLive to bring even more live music to the San Luis Obispo community,” said owner and operator Dan Sheehan. “The Fremont has been a fixture of the community for decades and we feel we are just getting started on the live music history of the Fremont Theater!”
