U.K. concert organizers came up with a new idea to organize first-ever socially distanced outdoor concert during ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The Virgin Money Unity Arena is a new venue in England dedicated to organizing a safe concert-enjoying experience during hard times of COVID-19.
This company managed an outdoor concert for up to 2,500 people at the arena in Gosforth Park, Newcastle, on Aug. 11. They organized groups of up to five people at one of 500 viewing spaces to watch the performance of musician Sam Fender.
Social distancing will be enforced when guests arrive. Their cars will be parked with a 2-meter distance from each other and the organizers will guide concert attendees to their viewing areas — which is socially distanced up to 2 meters apart.
The organizers expressed their gratitude to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) staff and front-line workers and announced that they will give away some free tickets for key care workers.
This is the first-ever concert of the entertainment industry that has been organized keeping COVID-19 prevention measures in view.
