After the concert was postponed when venue TempleLive received a cease-and-desist order, the event headlined by Bishop Gunn's Travis McCready finally took place last night (May 18) in Fort Smith. As various footage shows, the concert looked hugely different than what you'd typically expect a few months ago.
The capacity of the show as slashed from 1,000 concertgoers to just 200, while all attendees were ordered to keep two metres apart, either via spread-out seating and caution tape. Fans also had their temperatures taken at the door and had to wear face masks throughout the show.
If attendees needed to go to the washroom, the bathrooms allowed only 10 people in at a time. The concession was still open, but it only sold beverages that were pre-packaged. The concert also held a paid livestream of the event.
Oh, and there was most definitely not any moshing.
Of course, a bunch of footage has emerged, as well as some entertaining local news stories. You can check out a bunch of images and footage of the concert below.
Live music has a new twist: temperature checks, lots of space between fans and masks, of course!

Travis McCready は18日に、アメリカでロックダウン後初の"ソーシャルディスタンスコンサート"を開催しました。入り口で検温を行い、通路は一方通行、グループごとに距離をとってライブを鑑賞します。まるでSFの世界ですがこれは現実です。全てが元に戻る日はいったいいつになるのでしょうか？？ pic.twitter.com/GbAVo2ZFJK— sin Хентай (@Sin23Ou) May 19, 2020
