The old Concord Theatre sat in disrepair for years before a new vision arose, turning the venerable movie house on South Main Street into the city’s newest music venue. Owned by the Capitol Center for the Arts, which still draws some of the biggest acts in the state, the Bank of New Hampshire Stage will do smaller, more intimate shows with bands touring the region and country. It can fit 400 people on the open floor or 260 seated when retractable seats are pulled out. The summer of 2019 was considered a soft launch for the new Bank of N.H. Stage, but the live music is set to turn up to full volume this fall with a packed lineup. Around Concord sent Geoff Forester to capture the scene.
