s this the #future of music gigs?
These are images from one of the first (and might we say, hugely impressive!) socially-distanced gigs that recently took place in Newcastle, UK. The 2,500 tickets up for sale, sold out within minutes.
Each 'viewing platform' could accommodate up to 5 guests, and were neatly placed in distanced rows and columns to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19. Customers were requested to wear masks/face coverings on-site and organisers had systems in place where food & drink orders could be pre-ordered to avoid queuing.
Helen Page, Group Brand & Marketing director at Virgin Money stated, "We are delighted to play a part in bringing back live music events as we start to emerge from lockdown."
