The Ryman Auditorium Has Officially Reopened For Live Music (At 5% Capacity)

…Don’t get too excited just yet, there’s a bit of a catch.

This Friday (September 4), Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium will open its doors and have live music for the first time in nearly six months. BUT, there won’t be much opportunity to get your hand on some tickets with the new capacity rules.

The Tennessean explained that audiences for the shows “will be limited to 125 ticketed guests — roughly 5% of the venue’s capacity. Groups of 2 to 6 will be placed in physically distanced sections throughout the building. Masks will be mandatory for all guests and staff. All food and beverage stations will be closed, but the Ryman will offer complimentary bottled water.”

HEY! GREAT – a bottle of water. How about an aluminum pint though…

These are the upcoming shows for the “Live At the Ryman” concert series:

9/4 – Scotty McCreery

9/11 – Brett Young

9/18 – Old Crow Medicine Show

If you missed Sturgill’s bluegrass concert from an empty Ryman back in June, watch it now.
