NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Ryman Auditorium will resume live concerts this Friday at a 125-seat capacity. The show will also be live streamed.
Scotty McCreery will return to the Ryman stage this week, which marks his second performance this year. The Ryman says his performance on March 11 was just two days before the venue stopped all shows with a live audience.
He made the announcement Tuesday morning on social media.
The Ryman says the “Live at the Ryman” concert series is a hybrid model developed with input from Vanderbilt Health. The venue says it’s complying with guidelines from the Nashville Public Health Department that include socially-distanced seating and mandatory mask wearing.
They say staff will be on hand to make sure everyone is following the guidelines. The venue’s operating plans include:
- “Exclusive to 125 ticketed guests (approx. 5 percent capacity)”
- “Physically distanced in-venue (POD) seating, allowing groups of 2-6 people per POD”
- “Mandatory masks for all guests, Ryman operations and production staff “
- “Designated restrooms, entrance and exit points for main floor and balcony seating”
- “No food or beverage service (complimentary bottled water will be available)”
- “Temperature checks for all Ryman staff”
- “Enhanced cleaning practices”
In-venue ticket prices start at $89 – that includes a Hatch Show Print poster and in-person access to a Q&A prior to the show. Live stream ticket prices begin at $10 with VIP upgrades available for $40 (live stream ticket and Q&A) and $95 (live stream ticket, Q&A, autographed Hatch Show Print poster and series t-shirt).
Tickets went on sale at 10:30 a.m. Click here for more information.
