A permit to allow Live Nation to hold a summer concert series at the America’s Cup Pavilion has been appealed.

The appeal is scheduled to be heard May 8 by the Board of Appeals.

An event permit was approved this month for the 9,000-seat venue to host as many as 30 nighttime concerts. But neighbors worry the number of concerts as well as the curfew — weekday events will end by 10:30 p.m., while weekend shows will be completed by 11 p.m. — would cause too much noise and congestion for the surrounding residences. Because of the concerns, the neighbors  would like to see limitations placed on the permit.

The entertainment permit was granted after Live Nation met with neighbors and the community and reached a deal on a scaled-back plan for the concerts.

The concerts the at America’s Cup Village on Piers 27-29, which will be used as a viewing area for races during the America’s Cup and related events, are expected to begin May 31 and last through Oct. 15. Big-name acts including Sting, Weezer, Train, Jason Mraz and the Steve Miller Band are scheduled to play at the outdoor, waterfront venue.
