Live Music Coming Back To U.S. Cellular Center


Following months of postponed or canceled concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, efforts are underway to bring live music back to U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids.

Venu Works says it's launching its Live at the Five weekly concert series that will feature local bands.

“We don’t want to just sit back and wait for things to get better. We are really focused on adapting and pivoting our business model to meet the new conditions,” Michael Silva, executive director of VenuWorks, tells KCRG-TV 9.

Silva says there will be some new realities for concertgoers. There won't be any mosh pits, seating will be socially distanced and everyone will have to wear masks.

The first concert is scheduled for July 30th.
