Foreigner will help usher in the return of live music at Orlando’s Frontyard Festival this coming March. The “Cold As Ice” hitmakers are set to perform two nights in a row on March 23rd and 24th in a specially-built 3-acre outdoor theater.
As the approval of at least one vaccine for the coronavirus has provided a sliver of light at the end of the tunnel, the live entertainment industry is continuing to find creative ways to weather the storm. The Frontyard Festival at the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando is taking place over the course of six months. The venue features hundreds of private guest boxes placed six feet apart and strictly adheres to Covid-19 health and safety protocols including touchless temperature checks, increased sanitation, and required mask-wearing (outside of guest boxes). On-site food vendors take orders remotely and deliver straight to your guest box.
The name, Frontyard Festival, was inspired by the fact that throughout the pandemic, our front yards have become gathering places for friends and family.
“We are so happy to be able to perform live again because we and our fans really miss the experience,” said Foreigner lead singer Kelly Hansen in a statement. “We saw how the team at Dr. Phillips Center cared about the health of their audiences and innovated socially-distant concerts, and that’s why we chose it as our first show for 2021. There’s nothing like it anywhere else in the country. We are so excited to connect with our fans in a safe manner, and can’t wait to play live again at the Frontyard Festival.”
Tickets for Foreigner’s March 23 and March 24th performances are available from the Dr. Phillips Center’s website. Tickets are sold by-the-box which may contain 4 or 5 seats.
