RiversEdge continues 2020 season tonight with more shows planned

Flying Buffaloes and Motherfolk performed at RiversEdge Amphitheater Thursday, August 6, 2020 with limited capacity to meet social distancing requirements. The RiversEdge concerts series is normally free but they have fenced off the area and attendees must now purchase tickets to reserve a square marked out on the grass designated as their seating area. The squares are spaced out around the venue with plenty of room to walk between them and stay distanced. NICK GRAHAM / STAFF

Other shows this season will include Material Girl & The Flame Monster (Madonna & Lady Gaga Tribute) on Sept. 4; Signs of Life: The American Pink Floyd on Sept. 19; 90 Proof Twang, Dallas Moore and Jim Burns Band on Oct. 8 and Face 2 Face – Tribute to Elton John/Tribute to Billy Joel on Oct. 17.

Due to social distancing requirements, RiversEdge will be operating at a limited capacity until further notice. Operating at a reduced capacity makes it infeasible to produce free-admission concerts. All attendees must purchase a ticket until the venue is permitted to operate at full capacity.

Each of the squares can accommodate two to nine people in lawn chairs. A purchaser must buy the entire square and is responsible for the cost of the square.

If tickets/squares don’t sell out in advance, guests can walk up to the gate after the doors open at 5:30 p.m. and buy a square the day of the show.
