KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A groundbreaking was held Tuesday for a new concert venue coming soon to Knoxville.

The venue called "Back Porch on the Creek" will be located next to the Harley-Davidson West dealership on Lovell Road.

Knoxville Harley-Davidson is partnering with Copper Moon Entertainment Group to build the large outdoor concert space. The $1 million facility will include a large deck and stage with state of the art tech support, lighting and video equipment.

The venue will seat 4,000 people.

"I think it's the mom and pop that want to bring kids out here and have a good time to various musicians. We expect to have songwriters here. We hope to have band concerts here. We hope to have other venues like car shows, bike shows, safety seminars, anything to go in that venue," said Dyle Brown with Harley-Davidson.

Among those celebrating the new venue Tuesday was Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett.
