Country Club Hills Amphitheater's summer season in doubt

The Country Club Hills Amphitheater is scheduled to open its summer season this Saturday with a performance by the Isley Brothers. But that concert is in jeopardy because the city council may cut the venue's funding.

The south suburban amphitheater has a dozen summer concerts booked, but a group of Country Club Hills aldermen say they never approved the venue's contracts, and it is losing money.

A special council meeting will convene Wednesday night to go over the contracts and make a decision on the 600-seat venue's immediate future.
