CHICAGO, IL — Live Nation is selling its interest in historic Chicago theaters including the Palace and the Oriental, for $60 million dollars to Nederlander.

In a statement that accompanied the filing of its third-quarter results, the entertainment company Live Nation said Thursday that it entered into a definitive agreement with entities wholly owned by Nederlander to sell its interest in Broadway in Chicago — and associated ownership of the Oriental — for $60 million.

Broadway in Chicago, which presents Broadway shows like “Jersey Boys” and “Wicked” in Chicago, had been operating as a 50-50 partnership between the Nederlander Organization and Live Nation (once part of Clear Channel Entertainment). However, the ownership of the Loop theaters controlled by the entity remained separate.
