RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — As the weather warms up and COVID-19 restrictions are lifted the Broadberry is coming back at full capacity with a new concert lineup.
The venue announced they would be reopening July 31 on Tuesday. Lucas Fritz, co-owner of The Broadberry, said they will also be operating at full capacity.
“Music is such an integral part of the human experience,” Fritz said. “Re-opening The Broadberry to allow for indoor concerts after 16 months of being shuttered seems surreal. We can’t wait to see the joy live music continues to bring the City of Richmond.”
Now that demand for concerts has been building for over a year for many Richmonders, Fritz says tickets to shows are already selling.

“We just announced almost 30 concerts, it’s going to be great to have all these musicians back on stage, they have also not had any place to perform for almost a year,” Fritz said.
Some musicians were able to perform at limited virtual and outdoor pod-style shows, but with restrictions being lifted in Virginia and across the country, those shows may be on their way out.
Fritz calls the vaccines and lifted restrictions a “step towards normal”
“Anyone that is able to get a vaccine should get a vaccine,” Fritz said.
The Broadberry will be recommending that concert goers that aren’t fully vaccinated still wear their mask at shows.
