Check out our big news. Innovation Concerts is proud to announce we have added Mainstreet Bar (formerly known as The Main Event) to our exclusive roster of venues. We already have confirmed a good number of shows that we will be announcing in the coming days. We at Innovation Crew are super excited about this venue and can't wait to bring it back to it's former glory as Toledo's premier concert venue.
For years, The Main Event occupied 141 MainStreet on Toledo's east side. From Kid Rock to Marilyn Manson, Nickelback to The Deftones, when it came to live music, The Main Event played host to some of the most recognized artists while they toured through the mid-west.
Now nearly a dozen years later, Innovation Concerts, Toledo's premier concert promotions company, will resurrect the spirit of The Main Event at its original east side location by converting The Main Street Bar back into a live music venue. Innovation Concerts currently books local and touring acts at Headliners and Mickey Finn's in Toledo, and Howard's Club H and The Cla-Zel Theatre in Bowling Green.
"And we will continue to do so," says Broc Curry, founder of Innovation Concerts, regarding the other venues his company currently books.
Curry continues, "We decided to relaunch a venue at The Main Event's prior location because there isn't a room of that size with as much legacy in the city. Toledo had a great music scene. My goal in doing this is to bring that energy back to Toledo."
Not only will The Main Street Bar provide a unique tour stop for some of the nation's most famous acts, it will also provide a habitat to nurture the area's local talent. While there are many other unique venues throughout Northwest Ohio to catch the next up and coming rock 'n roll superstar, Innovation Concerts sees their newest endeavor as the spark to reignite the scene that once thrived in the Glass City; when patrons and musicians came out to the local venue just to see what was going on. That spirit still exists somewhere in the bones of Toledo's local musicians and music fans. Let it come back to Main Street.
