Brooklyn Paper excerpt -
Coney Island is about to really be buzzing.
The landmarked Childs Restaurant will reopen as an indoor-outdoor
concert venue in July, officials announced on Feb. 16. The city tapped
entertainment megalith Live Nation to book shows at the 5,000-seat
amphitheater, and the company, which owns Ticketmaster and regularly
sends national acts to Barclays Center, is poised to bring big-time
talent to the seaside concert house.
