A concert venue in Dubuque plans to hold a country music concert this weekend – its first big show since COVID started a year ago.
HR Cook, general manager of Five Flags Center, says Lee Brice’s concert will be the first major event at the facility since “The Price is Right Live!” played to a sold-out audience on March 10th last year.
Under Dubuque’s mask ordinance, concert goers are only allowed to lower their face coverings to eat or drink – otherwise, they need to mask up. Cook says they likely won’t be able to guarantee 100-percent compliance with a crowd of that size, but they’ll try.
It’s been a long year of restrictions and inconveniences for many Iowans due to the pandemic, and Cook says country music lovers are clamoring for live performances, even if the concert is still subject to some rules.
Cook anticipates selling out the reduced-capacity venue for the Saturday night show.
