In 2015, the Browns, with the City of Cleveland’s support, completed a two-year modernization project of FirstEnergy Stadium that began in 2013 to provide the team and its fans a top-tier facility for NFL games, as well as major events and concerts. More information about FirstEnergy Stadium is available on pages 419-421 of the 2017 Cleveland Browns Media Guide.
In the summer of 2014, Beyoncé and JAY-Z performed six weeks of sold-out stadium dates across North America with their highly anticipated ON THE RUN tour. The tour closed with two international dates in Paris, France that were filmed for an HBO special that received an Emmy nomination.
