Leftover Salmon will return to the stage in January 2021 for a three-night run at the Villar Performing Arts Center. The shows in Beaver Creek, CO will take place January 21st—23rd, 2021. These intimate concerts will mark the band’s first of 2021, and though they are still several months away, capacity will be capped at 100 people per show and follow all necessary health regulations.
“It’s certainly been a stretch since we turned the bus around on tour March 13th, canceled the Broadmoor, and then eventually our entire summer,” the band said in a press release. “We hope you all are doing as well as you can. It’s certainly a strange time!”
On VPAC’s website, the venue has listed five promises that their staff will keep in the hopes that fans will follow suit: I will maintain 6 feet of physical distance, I will wash my hands often, I will cover my face in public (VPAC will provide face coverings upon request), I will stay home when I am sick, I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms. Additionally, the venue will provide refunds to anyone who feels sick and decides they are unable to attend the show. Other requirements include frequent hand washing, social distancing, and masks worn in public spaces.
“We’re excited not only for what this will bring in terms of connecting us during divisive times through quality performances, but also what it will do to keep the vitality of our industry alive,” Duncan Horner, Executive Director of the Vilar Performing Arts Center, said. “We’ve long been a favorite stop on tour for many artists – now we can be a center not just for the finished performance product, but as a place to safely isolate and create new ideas during this exceptionally difficult time.”
Leftover Salmon recently performed their first live concerts since march in Buena Vista, CO. The three-night, socially-distanced run was dubbed “The Fall Maskerade.” Check out full coverage and photos from the weekend here.
