Tom Jones is to play two hotly anticipated shows at central New York’s newest club – The Nokia Theatre Times Square on February 14 and 15, 2006. Nokia Theatre Times Square brings entertainment’s hottest performers to New York’s most famous destination. The new 2100-capacity concert venue, developed and operated by AEG LIVE, only officially opened in September 2005. Nokia Theatre Times Square is located in the heart of Times Square at the corner of Broadway and 44th Street in the Viacom/MTV building and designed by the award-winning architecture firm, Rockwell Group. The theater attracts the hottest names in entertainment, yet still provides an intimate experience for patrons. The new home of Nokia Theatre Times Square has just undergone a $21 million renovation in the former Loews Movie Theater building. The venue contains a 2,100 capacity music hall, a wide range of gourmet food and beverage choices created by Europa Café, and an event merchandise sales area operated by AEG Merchandise. The Nokia Lounge will provide a relaxing atmosphere where guests will have the opportunity to charge their wireless phones, get hands-on experience with new Nokia products and services, download mobile content like games, videos and ring tones and enter promotions among other activities. The Nokia Theatre venues are part of the ‘Nokia Unwired’ marketing platform, which brings live music to fans in the Nokia Theatre venues, through concert tours and on music-oriented TV programming.
