TOWN OF DELAVAN — Despite the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus outbreak, one live music venue is still planning to carry out its 2020 schedule.
The concerts announced earlier this month by Belfry Music Theatre are still on at the moment, the theater stated recently on its Facebook page.
Belfry’s concert season is expected to kick off June 5.
Numerous live music events in March and April have been cancelled or postponed since the COVID-19 outbreak.
In its post, Belfry stated it will continue to monitor the virus over the next 60 days and act in the interest of its patrons.
“Any decisions to alter our 2020 season are future decisions,” the theater stated.
The theater also requested that people do not attend shows if they are ill, and it will issue full ticket refunds upon request.
April 1 is the earliest the general public can purchase tickets, but those with Belfry memberships can buy tickets already.
Tributes to some of the biggest names in pop, rock and country are scheduled to perform at the Belfry Theatre this year, many of which have played there before.
On the roster are tributes to everyone from Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond and Frank Sinatra to the Beatles, the Beach Boys and Led Zeppelin.
One act has members who are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Heart By Heart — which includes two of the original members of Heart — is set to play Belfry Oct. 2 and 3.
Paul Revere’s Raiders will perform there July 24 and 25.
The group formerly known as Paul Revere and the Raiders once sold records at a volume on par with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Chicago’s the Buckinghams will play the Belfry Aug. 19 and 20. The sunshine pop group had five Top 40 hits in 1967.
