SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Lawmakers approved a new deal for the naming rights of the Lakeview Amphitheater.

St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center has agreed to pay a total of $1.5 million over the course of 5 years, with half of that going to Live Nation, the venue's concert promoter.  The county will earn $750,000

St. Joe's can renegotiate the deal when the contract is up. County officials say they feel good about the outcome.

Officials were working on selling the naming rights since the new concert venue opened.
