A new privately-funded live-music venue is coming to Madison by 2015, according to Frank Productions.
Frank Productions announced plans Thursday to build the venue in the 1000 block of East Washington Avenue.
According to Fred Frank, chief operating officer of Frank Productions, the currently nameless venue will be uniquely Madison.
"We intend to create a space that's both easy and exciting for artists, as well as a venue that the Madison community can support and be proud of. We want the venue to become a Madison destination," Frank said.
Frank said he wants to build the 46,000-square-foot music venue to accommodate touring artists and their fans, which Frank said the community has been missing.
"It's just going to be built for what the touring artists are looking for today. They can't play every venue across the country. They are going to play the ones where they think the best fans are and where the best facilities are," Frank said.
