Starting next month, live shows will return to the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg, nearly seven months after the theater’s doors closed on March 12.
Three shows are currently scheduled for the month of October. On Oct. 3 blues guitarist Jose Ramirez will play, on Oct. 10 Ward Smith and friends will do stand-up comedy and Oct.17 will see guitarists Nate Najar (pictured) and Phill Fest. A press release says shows will be added to the lineup soon.
In order to facilitate social distancing, only 181 seats of the 831-seat Hough Hall will be available. The shows will also have no intermission, a decision which Executive Director Paul Wilborn said will prevent lines at the bathroom and concession windows.
Masks are also required when entering the Palladium and moving about the building.
Tickets cost $20 each and shows begin at 8 p.m. They can be purchased via mypalladium.org, or by calling the box office at 727-822-3590.
