ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- The Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Maryland Heights has been renamed.

In a news release Wednesday, Live Nation, which operates the venue, announced Hollywood Casino purchased the naming rights for the Amphitheater.

This is the fourth name change since it opened 1991.  The Hollywood Casino Amphitheater has also been called Riverport, UMB Bank Pavilion and Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. 

“This relationship with our next-door neighbor allows us to deepen our roots in the St. Louis region, further committing and connecting to the customers we serve," said Hollywood Casino General Manager, Todd George. “The cooperative marketing opportunities with Live Nation via the venue are so huge, we jumped at the chance to be part of the amphitheater experience. This just makes sense in so many ways.”
