Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain is an amphitheatre, located in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

History

It started as a temporary facility, located behind the ski lodge on Montage Mountain. In 1999, Lackawanna County built a permanent amphitheater further down the mountain. The new location has reserved seating for 7,000 people, covered by the pavilion roof, with room for another 10,500 on the lawn.

The amphitheatre played host to the Tattoo the Earth Tour on July 21, 2000. The show featured performances by Slipknot, Slayer, Sevendust, Sepultura, Hed PE, Mudvayne, downset., Hatebreed, Full Devil Jacket, Famous, Amen, U.P.O., Nothingface, PPM, Cold, Relative Ash, Systematic, Six Feet Under, Candiria, Lamb of God, God Forbid, Darkest Hour, Unearth, All That Remains, Dropkick Murphys, Sick of It All, Tiger Army, Converge, The Unseen, Reach the Sky, Stretch Arm Strong, Kill Your Idols and Nashville Pussy. It also featured 42 tattoo artists from Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Malaysia, Manitoba, Spain, Switzerland and the US.

In 2002, the operation of the facility was taken over by Clear Channel Communications and the building became known as the Ford Pavilion at Montage Mountain.

In June 2005, upon their first visit to Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Toyota Pavilion, The Dave Matthews Band became the first concert to ever completely sell out the pavilion attracting over 18,000 people. On their return in July 2006, they once again sold out the pavilion.

In 2006, the entertainment group splintered away from Clear Channel, becoming a new, independent company, Live Nation and the amphitheatre changed name again, to Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain.

On February 15, 2007, the tent roof collapsed under the weight of snow and ice from the previous day's Blizzard of 2007. A new roof was completed in time for the summer 2007 concert season.

Kings of Leon were scheduled to perform during their Come Around Sundown World Tour on June 8, 2010, with The Whigs as their opening act, but the show was cancelled, due to illness.[1]

The amphitheatre has played host to music festivals, including The Vans Warped Tour, The Uproar Festival, The Mayhem Festival, Lilith Fair, Ozzfest, Crüe Fest and Crüe Fest 2.
