Three 6 Mafia Announces Socially Distanced Arena Concert Amid Pandemic

Three 6 Mafia is ready to return to the live stage.

On Friday (Oct. 16), the Memphis hip-hop group announced that it will perform “the 1st indoor arena concert in the country since the pandemic” on Dec. 11 at the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky.

“Make sure you wear a mask, social distancing, y’all know what it is,” Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J said in a video on Instagram when announcing the event.

Tickets for the concert are currently available through Ticketmaster in “pods of 4 people or less” to ensure social distancing, Three 6 Mafia wrote on IG, adding that the show was approved by Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear.

Rapper Project Pat is scheduled to open the concert.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck earlier this year, thousands of tours and festivals around the world have been postponed or canceled in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus.

For the upcoming Three 6 Mafia show, Rupp Arena’s 21,017 capacity will be limited to 15 percent, which amounts to 3,152 concert-goers and event staff, ABC’s WTVQ reports. In addition to required face coverings, the fans in attendance will be subject to temperature checks upon entry.

“We have been in contact with the KY State Department of Health for many weeks working out the details and coming up with a plan that fulfills the safety protocols recommended by the CDC and the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” Lexington Center Corporation president/CEO Bill Owen reportedly said. “We are confident that the measures we have put in place will provide a safe environment for patrons to come out and enjoy live entertainment. We are excited for this opportunity to reopen our doors and welcome concert-goers back to Rupp Arena!”
