The private suites soon to be called Fire Pits at the future Sunset Amphitheater at Mustang Creek Crossing are selling fast.
The 12,000-seat amphitheater is planned at Mustang Creek Crossing, a development near Interstate 40 and the Kilpatrick Turnpike by Oklahoma City entrepreneur Sam Coury and family.
After the announcement about the amphitheater in July, a number of private suites have been sold, said Carol Hefner, Mustang Creek Crossing spokeswoman.
The suites sell for $250,000 and $500,000 and owners are considered part-owners of the amphitheater too, Hefner explained.
The suites are sold to owners who collect a percentage of ticket prices for all tickets sold for shows.
There will be 120 suites, known as Fire Pit Suites, and about half had been sold by the middle of September, Hefner said.
Ground will break for the amphitheater in spring 2024 and work is expected to last until spring 2025.
The types of shows include classic rock and roll, country and other big-name national acts, Hefner said. Chicago, Journey and Foreigner are expected on the future calendar dates.
The amphitheater will be on 21 acres with 15 acres for parking. There will be a fine-dining restaurant and fine food served at the suites, she said.
The Mustang Creek Crossing development will have a long-lasting economic impact on eastern Canadian County, Hefner said.
With about 5,000 new homes being built nearby, the development will also provide support, entertainment and jobs to people in the community. There will be a green space and walking trails.
The development is located on land south of Interstate 40 and north of SW 15th between Mustang Road and Sara Road.
About 60 to 70 family friendly shows are planned each year, Hefner said.
