The announcement came from the venue's official Facebook page and revealed that the new amphitheater will be officially known as Ford Amphitheater:

In fact, the former United States President and his First Lady, Betty Ford, have numerous landmarks that carry their names in the Vail Valley and are widely known to have been residents of nearby Beaver Creek.

In case you're not familiar, Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater is an absolutely gorgeous venue with a capacity of roughly 2,600 and hosts a slew of concerts each year, many of which are free of charge.

The new Ford Amphitheater in Colorado Springs is set to open this August with three consecutive concerts from hometown heroes OneRepublic.
