We posted about this a while ago, but now it’s a reality. In Newcastle, England this week the country’s first socially distant concert venue opened up and of course, we got a look at how it’s operating through social media posts. Here is what the Virgin Money ty Arena looks liked for a sold-out from the first show with Sam Fender. Music Biz dug into how the venue could influence massive changes to the future of live music with the global pandemic.
- What TV Shows did people start watching in the pandemic
- Look at what our Live from the Lot show with Local H in August 2020
The way they are doing it is giving everyone their enclosures to main tain the distance. The capacity for the venue is 2500. All drinks and food can be pre-ordered.
Some big names in UK alternative are playing Unity Arena in the weeks and months to come including Two Door Cinema Club, the Libertines, and more.
Hope this works out. Really miss concerts
