British American rock band, Foreigner are getting to perform next March at the first socially distanced music festival in America.
The Cold As Ice singers are booked to play The Frontyard Festival at the outdoor Dr. Phillips Center. The band will perform sets on the 23rd and 24th of March, and they cannot wait to get back in front of live fans again.
Lead singer Kelly Hansen said; “We are so happy to be able to perform live again because we and our fans really miss the experience. We saw how the team at Dr. Phillips Center cared about the health of their audiences and innovated socially-distant concerts, and that’s why we chose it as our first show for 2021.”
Kelly also spoke of the festival, saying there nothing like it, anywhere else in the country.
“We are so excited to connect with our fans in a safe manner and can’t wait to play live again at the Frontyard Festival.”
The purpose of this specially designed event is focused on reigniting the live entertainment scene after COVID-19 shutdowns. Like so many other businesses within the music industry, events, gigs and big festivals have been hit really hard by the pandemic.
The festival will take place over six months at the spacious, purpose-built Dr Phillips Center in Orlando, Florida. The venue features designs that resemble people’s own back gardens, acknowledging the fact the outdoor areas have become safe spaces for friends and family members to gather.
At the Dr. Phillips Center, festival goers will be able to relax and enjoy the shows in hundreds of private, elevated boxes, six feet away from one another. Temperature checks will be made on guests upon entry to the arena and they will also have to wear face masks, ant time they step outside their boxes.
