PEORIA – A 20,000 square foot entertainment and event center is coming to North Peoria.


The Limelight Eventplex will open its doors in February on University Street, just north of Pioneer Parkway.


The owners said they saw a need for a mid-sized event center in Peoria. This facility can hold up to 1,500 people.


They plan to host nationally-known music acts of all genres, and be available for corporate parties or weddings.


Manager Devin Birch said, “We just want to be known for live music. National acts, original material that's key, getting the art in here and letting the community support multiple genres across the board.”


The first show is on February 9. It’s a Beatles Extravaganza.


Some notable names, such as Parmalee and Molly Hatchet band are coming to perform later this year.
