  1. Wow only 10% indoors! That’s better than no concerts like last year. But it stinks that they can’t do better. And really 15% outside. Tickets will become a premium and it was hard to get regular price tickets before for any good concert. Now it will be close to impossible! Venues should be fighting this. The governor better rethink about opening up this state or it’ll be a very sad summer. Why is everyone getting vaccines if we still can’t do or go anywhere! I know the venues have to respect the mandates, but there are so many that if you all got together and protested this something better might happen. Thanks for listening to my rant. MISSING LIVE MUSIC!!
