(CLEVELAND) Cleveland's famed Agora will reopen with a $3 million face lift by new owner AEG Presents. The legendary music venue opened in 1966 on Cornell Road in Little Italy, then moved to East 24th Street in 1967, and finally to 5000 Euclid Avenue in 1986. 

The Agora hosted rock acts from U2 to Bruce Springsteen before moving to its present location, formerly the Metropolitan Theater and then WHK Auditorium.  The 600 seat ballroom and 2000 capacity theater reopens Sunday with Attila followed by Fleet Foxes on Monday and Ween on Tuesday.

Original owner Henry J. "Hank" LoConte passed away in 2014. AEG Presents took control of the venue in 2017.
