ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Six more beach concerts or other major events are set for Atlantic City this summer and the next two.

The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority on Tuesday approved a three-year, $6 million agreement with Live Nation to bring concerts or events that draw at least 30,000 people.

Live Nation will put on six concerts during each of the next three summer seasons.

The company also got a $3 million contract to run events at Boardwalk Hall.

More than 80,000 people came to beach concerts by Maroon 5 and Rascal Flatts last summer, and more than 100,000 came for a Blake Shelton and Lady Antebellum concert the year before.
