The Ark Sets to Return to In Person Shows Starting July 29

The Ark will start by providing shows at half capacity. The goal is that, by the end of August, The Ark will be playing full capacity shows once more.

With the state reopening slowly, it’s time for some music venues to start opening their doors. For the first time in over a year, The Ark has announced its plans to reopen its doors on July 29.

Throughout the pandemic, The Ark has been committed to keeping the community safe but still provided some of the best shows possible. All year, we were given great virtual shows yet we still missed seeing these musicians and bands in person. Now, The Ark plans to start letting the audience back into the venue. This marks the first time that the venue welcomes audiences back into the Listening Room since the start of the pandemic.

The plan is to provide the shows but still remain socially distant. However, there is a limited capacity for general admission ticketed shows. The first shows will be done at half capacity in order to ensure the safety of audience members. Starting July 29, patrons can catch Kim Richey playing at the venue. The Steel Wheels are scheduled for August 1, and Adam Ezra Group will play on August 4.

The plan is that, by August 22, The Ark will be back to playing at full capacity with Marc Cohn.

Tickets to the above-listed shows are currently available for purchase. All attendees and guests will be required to comply with health and safety laws, orders, ordinances, regulations, and health and safety guidelines adopted by the State of Michigan, Washtenaw County, and The Ark. This will include face masks and health-screening guidelines in place at the time of the shows.

Stay safe and enjoy the shows!
