Because of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, in-person concert listings are occasional and audience capacity is both limited and socially distanced. Check ticketing, availability and rules in advance. Some small live events have asked us not to list them because of limited seating capacity or because they are by invitation only. We look forward to more available, pubic live events for in-person audiences.
