Plans Move Forward For Concert In Tremonton
TREMONTON, Utah – Plans are moving forward for a concert as Utah continues to see a spike in COVID-19 cases.
In Tremonton, organizers are expecting around 2,500 people Saturday. It comes just as this county is in green, even though the state as a whole is seeing a big spike in COVID-19 cases.
Bob Cosgrove is the promoter behind the event. He says in the arena can seat around 6,000, so there will be room to social distance.
“We thought this would be a great opportunity to have people realize that they can still get out, use common sense; we are asking them to wear masks. We have sanitizing stations out,” Cosgrove said.
Cosgrove says the current conditions elsewhere in the state is not lost on him either.
“We realize this isn’t for everyone,” he said. “If they don’t feel comfortable, we appreciate that and acknowledge that.”
Planning for the concert started months ago, around the time that Box Elder County put in the request to go green in June.
Jeff Hadfield, county commission chair, believes they’ve already proven it can be done safely. Three weeks ago, the county rodeo was here, which saw about five thousand on its busiest night.
“I think it’s a chance for people to get out and actually enjoy life again for people’s sanity’s sake,” he said. “I think mentally, it’s taken its toll on a lot of people.”
There will be designated seating for each group. Hadfield said the performers are concerned too, and that it’s only the third concert this year for Restless Heart.
“So they’ve asked us also, what are you taking; not just to protect the band members, but to protect the public as well,” he said.
The concert is raising funds for Honor Flight, which sends veterans to the war memorial in our nation’s capitol. For the closing number, Cosgrove says Lee Greenwood will have several veterans on stage, as he performs “Proud to be an American.”
