Live Concert Venues May Reopen For Outdoor Spring Performances
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Live concerts and performances have been mostly nonexistent since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Many venues haven’t hosted events for a full year, but operators were hopeful that will end soon.
Some places have welcomed back minimal amounts of people like at Vivint Arena and Abravanel Hall in downtown Salt Lake, but most music artists and plays have not been touring, which has left majority of the area’s stages dark since March 2020.
State Room Presents owner Chris Mautz said they were in a comfortable position going into the pandemic financially, but they wouldn’t have made it without stimulus funding from the government.
“Getting together the greater community is just something that I have been so pleased to be a part of,” Mautz said.
Organizers of the Deer Valley Outdoor Concert Series and event at Eccles Theatre said they hoped to have some shows, outside, starting in the spring.
