Beach concerts back in Atlantic City: New Jersey casino authority agrees to 3-year concert deal

Posted: Updated:

New Jersey’s Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and Live Nation Entertainment have agreed on an $1.8 million deal that would bring beach concerts back to Atlantic City.

The three-year deal was approved Tuesday at the authority's Board of Directors public meeting.

The deal also included a three-day weekend event this summer.

Additional details about dates and acts will be announced pending the approval of Gov. Phil Murphy.

Resorts Casino Hotel President Mark Giannantonio argued the events should take place midweek when the city has a lower occupancy.

Chairman Robert Mulcahy says future shows will be limited on the days they can take place.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
