UPDATED: 7/16 5:40 p.m.

A July 18 concert with Young the Giant and Fitz and the Tantrums has been moved from the Cuban Club to the Yuengling Center.

“Your tickets will be valid for the new venue (no exchanges needed),” promoter AEG Presents wrote on a social media event page. “We apologize for any inconvenience.”

An official press release is still on the way, but the move would presumably open up more tickets to see the indie-pop acts. This is the second big show to move from a 2,000-capacity-ish 4,250-capacity venue to the Yuengling Center, which can accommodate a much larger crowd (5,000 additional tickets became available when rapper-flutist Lizzo moved her show there from Jannus Live, which can hold 2,000 people, to the Yuengling Center).

In a press release sent out on Tuesday, July 16, Yuengling Center officials said that guests who brought tickets for the Cuban Club show via AXS/The Cuban Club may begin to enter the building at Gate A at 5:30 p.m. That’s 30 minutes before guests who bought their tickets after the venue change — and through Ticketmaster — will be allowed to enter through Gates A, B and C.

The show will be a general admission affair, and AXS/The Cuban Club ticket holders will have priority access on the floor and to seating in the 100 Level. If you bought tickets to the Cuban Club show and can no longer attend, then refunds are available via point of purchase.
