WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Live Oak Bank will be the title sponsor of the new Riverfront Park Amphitheater, Live Nation announced Wednesday.
The Live Oak Bank Pavilion at Riverfront Park will host the first of three sold-out shows by Widespread Panic on Friday, July 16.

We’re excited for this moment in our history and all the moments that will come from these partnerships and investments.”
