2020 Season Special Announcement

Based on these unprecedented times, the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre remains uncertain of 2020 concert dates. We are in communication with governmental officials and expect updates as they become available. In the meantime, we are developing plans to provide social distancing with heightened cleanliness in anticipation of welcoming guests, artists and employees to the Aretha as soon as possible. 

Sixteen shows have been on sale since before the Coronavirus necessitated the Governor’s Stay At Home order now effective through May 15. Twelve of the shows are part of the Wednesday Jazzy Nights Series. No shows have been cancelled.

We have officially postponed the June 10th Sheila E., June 13 Maxwell with Symphony, the June 21 Father’s Day Isley Brothers/Chaka Khan and July 3 Joss Stone/Macy Gray shows. As soon as governmental guidelines and approvals permit, new dates for these shows will be announced.

These are difficult times for our customers, employees and performing artists. With the uncertainty in mind the following policies continue to apply:

Postponed Shows:

Once new dates are confirmed an announcement will be made. Those unable to attend on the new show date will be provided refunds from their original point of purchase within a 30-day period after the announcement.

Cancelled Shows:

Should a show cancel, refunds will be available from the original point of purchase. There are currently no cancelled shows at the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre.

Looking forward to again enjoying great music with a summer breeze by the river. Please be patient and stay safe while we all work towards that day. We have joined the newly formed National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) as the industry advocates for survival of independent stages such as ours and encourage your support.

You can access the NIVA link directly from our website. We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available.
