Rupp Arena has not hosted a concert since the pandemic shut everything down in March. In December, that will change. This morning, it was announced that the first concert back at Rupp will be Three 6 Mafia featuring special guest Project Pat on December 11.
Rupp’s capacity will be limited to 15%, so 3,152 patrons and event staff. Tickets will be sold in socially-distanced pods of up to six. Face coverings will be required throughout the entire event, and guests will be subject to temperature checks upon entry.
“We have been in contact with the KY State Department of Health for many weeks working out the details and coming up with a plan that fulfills the safety protocols recommended by the CDC and the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” Lexington Center Corporation CEO and President Bill Owen said. “We are confident that the measures we have put in place will provide a safe environment for patrons to come out and enjoy live entertainment. We are excited for this opportunity to reopen our doors and welcome concert-goers back to Rupp Arena!”
Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster. Leave the musical act aside, would you go to an indoor concert in December?
