Naming rights have been held by St. Joseph’s Health since 2018, and before that, the venue was simply called Lakeview Amphitheater since opening in September 2015.

Announced on Friday morning, the Syracuse-based Empower FCU said the following in a statement:

Empower FCU was born and raised in the Salt City, and now is among the largest credit unions in New York, with over 250,000 members, over 600 employees and more than $3.2 billion in assets. The Empower Federal Credit Union Amphitheater at Lakeview reflects a commitment to our Central New York roots by creating unique experiences for our members and the local community we serve.

Ryan McIntyre, Empower president and CEO

St. Joseph’s Health said in a statement they were thankful for the partnership and will continue the “fast lane” program for nurses going to the venue: Music is a healing art, and as we stated when we took on this sponsorship in 2018, we firmly believe it is an important part of the culture of our diverse community and our healing ministry.”

The 17,500-seat venue also announced this morning that country music star Lainey Wilson will bring her “Country’s Cool Again” tour to Empower FCU Amphitheater at Lakeview on June 24, 2024 with special guests Ian Munsick and Zach Top.

Stay tuned for more announcements for Summer 2024 at Lakeview and amphitheaters across New York State.
