Though Firestone invested in becoming a live venue several years ago, as the brand overhaul that inserted “live” into its name attests, the spot was constantly panned for operational and infrastructural issues. But even though it’s returned to its club roots, its stage recently underwent a whopping overhaul that opened its walls for a more than 180-degree view, lowered its floor for more optimal viewing and engagement, and upgraded its sound, lights and effects to the tune of a quarter-million dollars. Now wouldn’t it be a waste not to flex all that on some big concerts?
