More Concerts Announced for the New Walmart AMP in Rogers

Posted by Jennifer Haile on Wed, Mar 12, 2014

AMP Design Concept

I don't know about you guys, but the little taste of spring we had this week has made me even more excited about being able to enjoy some live music and great weather in Rogers soon! If you've driven along I-540 in Rogers recently, I'm sure you've noticed the big changes on the west side of the interstate near exit 83. The Walmart AMP, located on Northgate Rd., right beside Embassy Suites off of I-540, is really coming along and will be ready to host concerts starting in June of this year. You can see just how far the AMP has come by watching a really cool time-lapse video of the construction here (plus a birds-eye view of the FOUR snow storms we've had this year). Spring will be here before we know it and music will be filling the air!
