Lexington, Kentucky (LEX 18) — A year ago, country music lovers were able to enjoy “acoustic jams” at the Lexington Opera House. This year, it will be held at Rupp Arena to follow the guidelines for social distance.
Headliners Brantley Gilbert, Riley Green, Russell Dickerson and Dylan Scott will play at the Rupp Arena on Friday. This will be the first live music event at Rupp Arena since the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We were able to work with the Governor’s Office to set this up in a place that could accommodate 2,800 people. If you’ve been to a George Strait concert, it’s set up the same way. In the middle of the floor. , And the people around it. “
What is the biggest difference that concert attendees will experience? Tickets are sold in pairs so it won’t get crowded.
“The pods are scattered all over, and the distance between each pod is 6 feet,” Hall said.
At the entrance, concert attendees will check their body temperature for a health check and security.
“We want our ushers to walk up and down the aisle more aggressively and stay in the seats they purchased. They always wear face masks, and only then. You act aggressively. That’s the keyword, and I’m actively eating and drinking. “
With just a few hundred tickets left, Acoustic Jam organizers hope the concert will be a huge success. Well, when it comes to hosting other music events like this, it’s up to the concert participants to follow the rules.
“Hopefully, with everyone’s participation and cooperation, this will be every six weeks, every two months, and somewhere in that range we can produce a similar type of show,” Hall said.
