REVISED 2021 SUMMER CONCERT SERIES
2021 REVISED DELAWARE LOTTERY SUMMER CONCERT SERIES LINEUP
2021 REVISED DELAWARE LOTTERY SUMMER CONCERT SERIES AT THE M&T BANK GRANDSTAND
We are under 100 days until the 2021 Delaware State Fair and continue to be hard at work planning for a full fair! In the world of concerts we have to announce significant changes to the M&T Bank Grandstand lineup for the 2021 Fair (July 22nd – July 31st). These changes were prompted by guidance just received from the DE Department of Public Health on how to safely hold outdoor concerts and shows in Harrington later this summer.
In order to comply with COVID-19 social distancing requirements, the capacity of the M&T Bank Grandstand has been dramatically reduced compared to pre-COVID times. This fact alone has caused fair management to reconsider the lineup that has been on sale since last November.
REDUCED SEATING CAPACITY AND THE CREATION OF SOCIAL DISTANCED PODS / SECTIONS
Unfortunately, we cannot offer PIT or VIP Loft tickets located on the TRACK. The track area will now be set up with 222 pods seating 888 ticket holders comprised of groups of 4 seats arranged and separated from other pods with social distancing guidelines in mind. Track seats can only be purchased as a group of 4 seats. Ticket buyers must purchase tickets in either a 2, 4 or 6 seat grouping. Track PODS are only available in a grouping of 4 chairs where stadium and grandstand sections have 2, 4 or 6 seat options available. In the bleacher and grandstand areas, every other row has been taken out of service and 2 empty chars must be preserved between ticket buying parties.
Fair leadership and management genuinely appreciate the advice we were able to receive from the Department of Public Health. Unfortunately, 6 of the largest shows have to be cancelled for 2021 due to the DPH COVID-19 mandated lowered capacity of only 2,500 sell-able seats for each concert and 1,500 seats for our wheel events like the demo derby. We are pleased to announce that Sam Hunt has has agreed to rescheduling his show for July 21, 2022. New on sale information will be made available at a later date.
Due to the downsizing of all seating areas, the Fair has issued refunds on April 15th to all patrons who purchased tickets directly from the Fair for the Roots and Boots show scheduled for June 12th in the Quillen Arena and all 2021 Fair shows that were on sale up until this week, including Sam Hunt, TobyMac, Tedeschi Trucks Band, I Love the 90’s Tour and Hank Williams Jr.,
