Together Again will mark the first outdoor concert series emerging out of the pandemic in Canada. Enhanced safety measures include limited capacity to ensure safe social distancing, reserved tables for up to six people with full-service food & beverage delivery via mobile ordering, contact tracing, mandatory masks and more — much like the Health Alberta guidelines governing restaurant patios.
Trixstar's Mike Anderson said in a statement: "Music is an important part of bringing people together and connecting is important for mental health. We're making it safer and more intimate while creating more space and keeping the same excitement you'd expect seeing your favourite bands perform live on stage. It's time to get off our screens and back to experiences."
Further, $2.00 from every ticket purchase will be donated to Boyle Street Community Services and Hope Mission to help support men, women, youth and children experiencing poverty and homelessness in Edmonton.
"Giving back to the community is very meaningful to us," says Anderson, "this concert series was built on the foundation of second chances. We're very excited to get the live events industry back up and running. This series alone will create over 500 jobs for artists, technicians, security guards, bartenders, parking staff and countless other Albertans that have had a tough 15 months."
Tickets are on pre-sale here from 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM MST on June 10 with the code EXCLAIM. The official sale runs from June 11th onwards. Check out the announcement video & poster below, and stay tuned for further date & lineup details.
