This intimate acoustic set by McCready at TempleLive in Fort Smith, Arkansas is giving us a glimpse of what could be the new normal. Just days ahead of the official reopening date of May 18th.

Seats are being sold in groups of 2-13 that must be purchased together. Ticketmaster has dubbed this “Fan Pods”. All available seating will maintain a safe distance of 6 feet apart. Only 20% of seating is available at the venue which can hold 1,100 people.

Concert goers will have to adjust to protocols like getting their temperature taken before entering the building, wearing a mask, and one-way walkways to follow inside the venue.

We could be going to concerts again sooner rather than later if all goes well.
