No tickets are required for the free concert, but seating is limited to 350, assigned on a first-come, first-served basis (Free, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 13, 100 Auditorium Circle, tobincenter.org
The Tobin is particularly well-equipped to maintain social distancing measures due to its state-of-the-art flooring system. Individual seats and rows can easily be removed allowing for adequate space between attendees.
Additional safety requirements include temperature checks at the door for all attendees, as well as the requirement that everyone wear a face cover. Masks will be provided to those who do not have them.
