Due to unforeseen logistical issues, the Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy, previously scheduled at the Quicken Loans Arena on July 17, 2017, will now be held at the magnificent KeyBank State Theatre at Playhouse Square (1519 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH) on July 17, 2017. Throughout the past century, the lavishly ornate KeyBank State Theatre – the largest venue in Cleveland’s world-renowned theater district – has hosted iconic sound and screen stars such as Abbott & Costello, Fred Astaire and Judy Garland, and theater productions of massive shows such as Disney’s The Lion King and Phantom of the Opera. The move to KeyBank State Theatre will allow 2017’s main event to shine in an authentic award show atmosphere.
All previous purchases for the show will be honored at KeyBank State Theatre. Ticket buyers – please check your Flash Seats account beginning Thursday, July 13, 2017 after noon ET for your new seat location. Every effort will be made to give ticket buyers an equivalent or greater ticket location. For detailed information on updated ticketing and VIP options/specifics, please visit this FAQ link.
Alternative Press Founder and CEO Mike Shea states, “We’re really excited to be holding the 2017 APMAs in the grand KeyBank State Theatre. For fans, the show experience will now feel more like the Oscars and Tony Awards, which are also held in theaters. Fans will be so much closer to their favorite artists and the whole night will now have a feeling of grandeur and even more excitement with a more intimate vibe.
