Well guys, it’s been a strange year without live music and I honestly started thinking there was never going to be a light at the end of the tunnel BUT The Hook and Ladder in Minneapolis just became a beacon of hope in all of the darkness. They have just announced a spectacular line-up of socially distanced and outdoor shows for this summer! Their ‘Under The Canopy’ series has such a wide-array of artists that there is surely a show in there for everyone.
My editor asked me to pick a few shows to highlight but I honestly can’t. It’s not even that I’m that hungry for live music, it’s more that each of these shows will be absolutely amazing. From album release parties to Cornbread Harris’ 94 birthday celebration all the way to a “Plant-Based Poets” night, they really have outdone themselves in making this one of the most eclectic yet inclusive line-ups I’ve ever seen.
There will only be fifty-six ticketed pods available for each of these shows. The pods are defined as a Household/Bubble and are available for purchase in 2, 4 and 6 guests pods for convenience. The Hook and Ladder has seriously done everything to make these events safe for everyone and I can not stress how amazing their entire layout and plan is. For more information on that plan, feel free to head to their social media account. They have maps and everything to help put your nerves at ease!
Below is a list of all of the shows that have been announced thus far but there are sure to be more to come. We will keep you updated on new announcements as they roll in! You can also find out more about how to snag tickets to these amazing (and limited capacity) shows below!
