The Pascua Yaqui Tribe had a vision to create the most unique entertainment destination in the state; a place that everyone could see top entertainers at a fraction of the cost of most concert venues in larger cities. In October 2001, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe transformed that dream into reality and AVA at Casino Del Sol was born, taking entertainment in Tucson to the next level by unveiling its beautiful open-air venue with country music superstar Alan Jackson.
Today, the nearly 5,000-seat amphitheater has become a hot spot in southern Arizona, taking the entertainment world by storm, selling out shows like Van Halen, Toby Keith, James Taylor, Don Henley, Luis Miguel and Brooks & Dunn.
With 1,779 reserved seats and more than 2,700 lawn seats, AVA offers a truly intimate setting for concertgoers. The large stage lets guests feel as if they can reach out and touch the stars in the sky, as well as on stage, making AVA Amphitheater the premier entertainment destination in southern Arizona.
