“In the summer the time had come and people just wanted to go out and start living again.”
Located off Interstate 70 at 6800 Executive Boulevard, the Rose Music Center is a 4,200-seat fully indoor amphitheater owned by the City of Huber Heights and operated by MEMI-Music and Event Management, Inc. Completed in 2015, on venue has offered a diverse lineup of acts spanning diverse genres ranging from country, rock and pop to soul, hip-hop and R&B. In fact, Rose Music Center received a 2020 nomination for Outdoor Venue of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
âThe Rose was designed for the fan experience,â said Moehring. âThere really isn’t a bad seat in the house. And the aesthetics – the number of concession stands, the number of restrooms, the VIP membership area – add to the (fun) of giving the viewer the best experience they’ve ever had. We also strive for the best entertainment, which has been proven by the number of sold-out shows, and with the positive feedback we’ve received from viewers and the community, it checks all the boxes overall. .
And the place adds to the character of the area that surrounds it.
âWhen it comes to the identity of Huber Heights, a city that has only been around for 40 years, the Rose has really put us on the map,â said Huber Heights Mayor Jeff Gore. âThe place is essential for us. People come to Huber Heights from all over the country. It is such a large space from its disposal to the fact that it is covered, so even in bad weather you can still enjoy a concert.
Gore also noted that the Rose generated a net profit of $ 1.1 million for the city this year.
âIt couldn’t be a better place for the city,â Gore said. âIt generates money that goes directly into our general fund that we use for other areas of the city, including our parks department, so it’s a very good thing for our residents. Developers, restaurateurs and entrepreneurs are also interested in the Executive Boulevard area, so having the place there helps in terms of being an engine of economic growth.
Going forward, audiences can anticipate five shows already scheduled for the 2022 season, including Air Supply (July 16), Goo Goo Dolls (August 3) and Ted Nugent (August 11).
âIn 2022, we expect to have one of the busiest concert seasons we have seen in a very long time,â said Moehring. âThe tours that should be released next year have dates to book shows. People are going to have the opportunity to see a lot of artists at the Rose Music Center. Some favorites will be coming back, but we’ll also have a lot of new artists that haven’t gone through this market yet that people will be excited to see.
