LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Dodgers have signed a multi-year deal to book more high-end concerts at their ballpark.

The deal between the team and Oak View Group was announced Tuesday. OVG was formed last year by artist manager Irving Azoff and Tim Leiweke, former president and CEO of AEG, which owns Staples Center.

Lon Rosen, chief marketing officer for the club, says the deal will help bring “more great performers” to the stadium.

Since opening in 1962, Dodger Stadium has hosted concerts by such acts as the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Madonna, Elton John, Michael Jackson and David Bowie.

The Dodgers emphasized that OVG is not a promoter, so the stadium will continue to work with all music promoters.
