The Columbia Fireflies and Ear for Music announced a socially distanced, "Safe Sounds" concert Monday featuring the Eagles tribute band, “On the Border.” Gates will open at Segra Park at 5 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show on Oct. 30.
”We know that people have really been missing the opportunity to enjoy some great live music, and we’ve been looking for the right partner to help us bring that to the Midlands safely,” said Brad Shank, executive vice president of the Fireflies. “After seeing the concept of Safe Sounds and hearing the reviews of the concerts that they have been hosting, we felt that this was the right way to provide an opportunity for our fans to safely experience a fantastic band in a unique outdoor environment.”
On the Border is a Charlotte-based band made up of Tracy Maples, Tim Giovanniello, Bill Morgan, Andy Young, Scott Sobota and Bob Orazi.
Segra Park will set up the stage on the diamond facing the outfield. Fans can purchase outfield pods for $125 (plus tax and fees). The 10x10 pods can accommodate up to four guests and fans are encouraged to bring blankets or beach towels to sit on. Chairs will not be allowed at the event.
Groups with more than four guests can purchase an available 10x20 pod for $250 (plus tax and fees). The maximum group size for the larger pods is eight guests.
Masks will be required for admission and movement on the concourse and restrooms and all attendees will be required to sign a waiver. Each pod will be socially distanced. Restrooms will be sanitized before, during and after the event to ensure maximum cleanliness. Credit and debit card payments will only be accepted.
Tickets for the event and additional information are available online.
