Tickets went on sale today for a concert lineup at Cargo Concert Hall, the small venue tucked away on the ground floor of the Whitney Peak Hotel. This is the first set of show dates that the music hall has booked in months since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
“It’s been a minute,” said Mike Young, production manager for Cargo. “We wanted to make sure that when we reopen, we do so in the safest way possible for the protection of our employees, guests and artists.”
In addition to presenting a ticket at the gate to enter, spectators will be required to present either a valid vaccination card proving they are fully vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of the show. Customers are also required to wear face masks inside the building, regardless of their immunization status.
The venue is also limiting its capacity at the moment. Cargo’s normal capacity for shows is 1,000, but Whitney Peak spokeswoman Rachel Zunino said she would cut that by 20%, limiting standing shows to 800 people.
“We were not comfortable with operating sold-out shows at this level given the volatile nature of COVID-19 right now in our community,” she said, adding that the decision could change along the way.
Here is a list of shows currently on sale:
- October 8 – Social distortion
- October 24 – We came as Romans
- October 30 – Halloween Bass Ball with RIOT TEN, VAMPA and Sweettooth (tickets here)
