About Providence Medical Center Amphitheater
Providence Medical Center Amphitheater is an open-air performance venue located in Bonner Springs, Kansas, conveniently located near the Kansas Speedway and Legends Outlets. Since its inception in 1984 as Sandstone Amphitheater, the venue has provided fans great experiences and treasured memories for over thirty years. It is the place in Kansas City to take in a great outdoor concert. Providence Medical Center Amphitheater can host up to 18,000 people, including approximately 3,100 reserved seats and multiple open-air suites.
Providence Medical Center Amphitheater has dramatically upgraded the fan experience at the venue over the past few years. While always a fan-friendly venue, many of the reserved seats closest to the stage were removed to provide an "up-front" general admission section designed to provide fans a more personal artist experience. Additional improvements include an upgraded VIP club, new sound and video systems, and improved buildings and plazas. The team at Providence Medical Center Amphitheater remains committed to providing the best possible concert experience in the Midwest.
Providence Medical Center Amphitheater is managed by New West Presentations, Inc.

Assistant General Manager
Matt was rescued from a cardboard box on the rainy streets of East St. Louis by New West Presentations, with nothing to his name other than a torn pair of Converse and a thermos. Since 2010, Matt has served as the resident "fireman" of New West Presentations, putting out the fires (both literal and figurative) at the venue, usually caused by Chris. His duties at the venue include ticketing, production, and creating unnecessary Photoshop's of the staff with famous people. Now living in Waldo, Matt enjoys playing guitar, attending beer festivals and professional unicorn hunting.
