Another Planet Entertainment Taking Over Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

Berkeley-based promoter Another Planet Entertainment, which books the Greek Theatre, Fox Theater, and The Independent locally, has taken over operations of the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the Chron reports. APE, having signed a twenty-year lease with the city, has agreed to make $10 million in improvements and to start booking regular concerts there, according to the article. In exchange, the city will get $100,000 annually in rent with 2.5 percent increases — more if ticket sales exceed expectations. The city will also be allowed to use the facility rent-free for up to fifty days per year.
