LP Field also doubles as a large concert venue, although very few concerts are scheduled there due to attendance at some previously scheduled shows that did not approach capacity and the site's operating arrangements, which make it difficult for concert promoters to make their usual profit margins on events held there.

Naming rights

During its construction, the stadium had no official name, though it was generally referred to as "The East Bank Stadium," a reference to the stadium's location on the eastern bank of the Cumberland River. Upon its completion, it was given the name Adelphia Coliseum in a 15-year, $30 million naming rights arrangement with Adelphia Business Solutions. However, after Adelphia missed a required payment and subsequently filed for bankruptcy in 2002, this name was dropped and the stadium became known simply as The Coliseum for four years. The current naming rights deal with Nashville-based Louisiana-Pacific was inked on June 6, 2006. Louisiana-Pacific, which markets itself as "LP Building Products", is paying $30 million over ten years for naming rights. [1]Several fans have even now taken to a new nickname for the facility: "The Woodshed," as per LP's wooden building products.
