Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium, a 2,362-seat live-performance venue located in Music City, is best known as the home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 to 1974. Since the coronavirus pandemic struck in late March, the room has been closed off along with the majority of venues across the country and beyond.
As other venues have done, the Ryman has been broadcasting their regular Live at the Ryman concert series to keep fans entertained. Now, with the recent easing of health restrictions in the city, they have announced that a limited audience will be able to physically attend these exclusive events.
Venues and event spaces are now able to operate at one-third of their capacity, or 125 people maximum at the Ryman, as long as masks are worn and proper social distancing is enforced.
This Friday, September 4, country singer Scotty McCreery will be on stage for the first-ever return show. In-venue tickets are on sale at the venue’s website at $89.00, while the livestream is priced at just $10.00.
The next concerts scheduled for the Ryman are Brett Young on September 11 and Old Crow Medicine Show on September 18.
