Alpine Valley Music Theatre for Sale

EAST TROY, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin music venue tucked away in the rolling hills of Walworth County that has hosted such musical greats as the Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam and the Grateful Dead is for sale.

Alpine Valley Music Theatre is also the place where guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and four others were killed in a helicopter crash following a performance on Aug. 27, 1990.

Now the amphitheater and its 198-acre property are on the market for $8.4 million. SFX, now Live Nation, bought the property in 1999.

The Music Theatre was built in 1977. The concert bowl seats 37,000 people.
