ST. PETERSBURG, FL – After closing on March 12, the Palladium believes the time is right to bring back live shows on a very limited basis starting with the first three Saturdays in October. Audiences will again have the opportunity to enjoy live music and a safe experience at the theater.
The Palladium will be producing 181-seat Side Door shows in their 831-seat Hough Hall with reserved seating. Individuals and groups sitting together will be placed at a safe distance from other patrons. Shows will be 90-minutes with no intermission to avoid lines at the bathroom and the concession windows. Everyone will wear a mask when they enter and move about the building. All shows are $20 per ticket and start at 8pm. Tickets available at www.mypalladium.org or by calling the box office at 727-822-3590.
“All of us at the Palladium look forward to welcoming you back to the theater for a series of exciting – and safe – shows!” –Paul Wilborn, Executive Director
