Coronavirus in Oklahoma: OKC's The Criterion reschedules Tech N9ne, Ween and Blackberry Smoke shows to 2021
The Criterion, 500 E Sheridan, has rescheduled three more concerts to 2021 in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Bricktown venue announced on Facebook that the Ween show originally schedule for Sept. 19 has been pushed to June 22, 2021.
The Tech N9ne concert originally slated for Sept. 3 has been rescheduled for April 17, 2021.
And the Blackberry Smoke show originally scheduled on June 12 at The Criterion has been delayed to Aug. 27, 2021.
All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates, according to the social media posts.
As previously reported, The Criterion was among several venues in the Oklahoma City area that participated earlier this month in the Red Alert Restart campaign, which is urging Congress to pass an economic relief package for the struggling live events and entertainment industry.
Nationwide, more than 1,500 venues in 35 cities were illuminated red on Sept. 1 to draw attention to the struggles that event venues, production companies, event planners, caterers, decorators, riggers, stage laborers, entertainers and more have dealt with since the COVID-19 outbreak hit Oklahoma in March.
Toucan Productions, Edge Productions, Cory’s Audio Visual, CNS Productions, factor 110, Epic Events, Baker Boys and more joined together to light up the Civic Center, Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame at Gaylord-Pickens Museum, Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma, the Myriad Garden’s Crystal Bridge, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, the American Banjo Museum, the Choctaw Casino, Rose State College, Embassy Suites Downtown OKC/Medical Center and The Criterion.
