The Caverns will once again resume holding concerts below ground, effective June 20th with a show by Twiddle. The Vermont natives will help reopen the famous subterranean concert space with a special acoustic set on Sunday, followed by a complete above-ground electric concert.
The Sunday show will begin at 6 p.m. CT with the special acoustic set below ground followed by a full show at 7 p.m. that sees the party move up to The Caverns Above Ground Amphitheatre. The below-ground show will be general admission, standing room only whereas guests above ground will either have pod or general admission tickets. All general admission seating will be located behind the two, four, and six-person pods.
Twiddle’s mixed-format show will mark the first underground concert at The Caverns since Arlo Guthrie performed on March 7th, 2020, just ahead of the complete shutdown of live music. In the wake of the pandemic’s decimation of live events, the home of PBS‘ Bluegrass Underground pivoted and opened up the “Big Room Cave” for tours, marking the first show cave to open in Tennessee in 50 years. As pandemic restrictions began to loosen and pod concerts became the new normal, The Caverns Above Ground Amphitheatre opened for socially distanced concerts by everyone from Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit to Goose.
Tickets for Twiddle at The Caverns on June 20th are on sale now through the venue. The band also just announced a New Year’s Eve concert at The Palladium in Worcester, MA. Tickets for that show go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. ET.
