“We have shows that start on June 26th. Most of them are tribute shows. Therefore, for the moment we will limit ourselves to Canadian talents. And we’re at 150 people. That’s all we can put into our theater under the restrictions for Phase 2, which begins June 20th, ”she told Zoom on Thursday.

“The people we’re getting and the people we’re going to come are going to be … the die-hard ones who just can’t wait for the music to come back.

“So we take the first ticket, open our doors, big smile, welcome.”

“Even if there are only 150 people, which is a drop in the bucket for our theater, it will still be pretty exciting to greet them again and hear the first note on stage. It’s pretty cool. “

TCU Place kicks off its 2021 season with two shows – one tribute to the music of Bob Seger and the other to John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) – both performed by Dan Hare on June 26th.

“There’s no way to find people in our theater or put on a show for 30 people… but once we have 150 – it’s still a challenge, don’t get me wrong – but we can find some artists who are ready to get involved on a show and we can make it viable with 150 people, ”Sweeney said.

“We’re always excited to see how ready consumers will be. We know we are ready, but will the community be ready? So we try to get in touch with our community in as many different ways as possible as often as possible to see how happy they are with the return to live events.

“We will continue to adhere to the safety protocols, the cleanliness, the disinfection … we may still have to keep a little distance as long as we have to make sure that our customers are comfortable.”

With the last live music performance held in November 2020 before capacity restrictions tightened, the 53-year-old venue was without music.

“It’s heartbreaking. I mean, I go on stage every day … this theater is such a magical place and has such a special place in our hearts for the community as well. I can’t wait to play the music again, ”Sweeney said.

Sweeney said they attend an average of about 75 music / entertainment events annually at the theater on TCU Place.

“For the remainder of this year – and again some of them are in various stages of completion – but we’ll probably have between 14 … 20 between now and the end of the year, somewhere in that range,” she said.

“Other shows we can’t talk about yet because we haven’t announced them yet, but more is in the works.”

Symptoms can include a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing – very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more serious illness. The people most at risk include older adults and people with severe chronic conditions such as heart, lung, or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact the health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent hand washing and coughing up your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible, and staying two meters away from other people when you go out. In situations where you cannot keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend using a non-medical face mask or cover to prevent the breath droplets that can carry the virus from spreading. In some provinces and municipalities across the country, masks or face coverings are now mandatory in indoor public spaces.
