Live Nation Silver Spring Concert Venue Begins Construction

Looks like the Verizon Center, Jiffy Lube Live, and Merriweather Post Pavilion won’t be the only places to catch your favorite artists when they are in the D.C. Metro.

Local politicians participated in the ground breaking ceremony for Live Nation’s Silver Spring, Md. concert venue, “Fillmore Silver Spring.”

The music hall will be constructed off Fenton Street, near Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue. It will be open to the public in the fall of 2011.

The state of Maryland contributed $4 million to the project, but much of the remaining costs will be paid for by the public.

Efforts to get a live music hall in Silver Spring date several years, first with the county unsuccessfully trying to get Alexandria's Birchmere Music Hall to open a second venue in Silver Spring.
