Statement From Live Nation - Indiana

"Yes, we are in escrow. Shriners International must still approve it and the sale could be completed sometime in late 2015. Because of the confidentiality agreement we are unable to discuss the transaction in future detail. We're confident though that we will be involved in bringing great music and entertainment to the city for many years to come."
