MCU Park is the centerpiece of historic Coney Island -- a multi-purpose venue that is not only the home of Brooklyn Cyclones championship baseball, but a landmark in the Brooklyn community, hosting a variety of events and entertainment each year. Concerts
Located just steps from Coney Island's famed boardwalk, MCU Park sits under the majestic Parachute Jump, with both the Atlantic Ocean and the historic amusement parks visible just beyond the ballpark's outfield walls. The unique locale and environment provides the perfect setting for concerts, parties, weddings, parades, outdoor sporting events, and more.
The ballpark's concert set-up allows for approximately 12,000 fans, and bands including Furthur, Wilco, Phish, Daft Punk, Def Leppard, and Bryan Adams have all played to sold-out crowds. MCU Park has also hosted Doo Wop, Merengue, and Reggae concerts, with various artists performing under the ballpark's neon lights.
MCU Park has also hosted championship boxing matches, high school and college baseball games (including PSAL & CHSAA Championship games, and The NYC Mayor's Cup All-Star Game), travel-team tournaments, New York Mets tryouts, and more.
In July of 2010, MCU Park was the site of Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling's return to the Tri-State area, with over 5,500 fans packing the ballpark for the biggest live show in TNA history!
The ballpark has been a filming site for a variety of commercials, as well as television shows (including Donald Trump's The Apprentice) and feature films (including Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's The Other Guys).
MCU Park is a venue unlike any other. It is both intimate and vast. Serene and exciting. State-of-the-art and nostalgic. The ballpark represents Coney Island's promise for the future, while it hearkens back to the glory days of Brooklyn's storied past.
Thanks to flexible indoor and outdoor space, and an unrivaled atmosphere and history, MCU Park is the perfect venue for virtually any event or occasion.
MCU Park has drawn some impressive artists to its makeshift concert stage: The White Stripes, Björk, and most famously, Phish, who were joined onstage by Brooklyn's own Jay-Z in 2004.
