Additional time info:

The Gallivan Center has an indoor venue and the outdoor stage. We look forward to moving to the outdoor stage as soon as weather permits. We won’t know if weather will be warm enough until a few days before the event. All this to say, the concert will go forward in either case, in Gallivan Hall if the weather is cool, outdoors if weather allows.
