I was wondering how long it would take for this to happen. Tweeter declared bankruptcy over a year ago if my memory doesn't fail me. It was only a matter of time before they needed to stop paying licensing fees to name concert venues and focus on their internal problems.

Eric Clapton may have played the blues last night, but probably not to mourn the demise of the Tweeter Center. The guitar legend headlined the first concert at the Mansfield amphitheater under its new name, Comcast Center.

The center was known as the Great Woods Center for Performing Arts when it opened in 1986, and renamed the Tweeter Center in 1999. Last year, electronics retailer Tweeter Home Entertainment Group Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and terminated naming agreements with entertainment venues, including the Mansfield performance space, which has a capacity of 19,900 and hosts about 35 events a year.
