Introducing the 1-800 Ask-Gary Amphitheatre

01:01 PM Thursday 6/10/10 | |

Wanna know the new name of the Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa? Ask Gary.

Before this begins to sound like a rip on the old Abbott & Costello “Who’s On First” routine crossed with Cheech & Chong’s “Dave,” 1-800 Ask-Gary is the name of the personal injuries law firm in Florida that just snagged the naming rights to the amphitheatre located at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

Live Nation made the announcement during a press conference held this morning on the amphitheatre’s stage, according to The Tampa Tribune.

Naming a venue after local a local business is hardly new, but we can’t help but imagine the confusion whenever someone inquires about the name of the shed, perhaps a musician asking the road manager where tonight’s show is, only to be told “Ask-Gary.”

But that might not be nearly as frustrating as anyone with the first name Gary who happens to be riding through Florida on a tour bus. You can bet that guy is going to get a lot of questions.

    this place is a dump, its fitting that ambulance chasers bought the naming rights. parking is a nightmare, up to 1/2 a mile walk from your car to the gate. its usally about 100 degrees in there, and the people that work there are idiots. if you have lower reserved seats and stand up during a song, someone comes by and asks if you can remain seated. unbelievable, i will never go there again.

    OMG, awful!

    The self-respecting, talented singers/bands out there will cringe at having to enter the place, and I thought Dental Comfort Ampitheatre in Denver was the worst.

    oh wait no, Sleep Country Ampitheatre near Portland...that WAS the worst until now.
