Fillmore Charlotte reopens for outdoor shows

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — When North Carolina moved into Phase 3 of reopening earlier this month, venues with outdoor seating were allowed to open with limited capacity.

The move didn’t help most local music venues which have been closed since the onset of the pandemic in mid-March and don’t have outdoor seating.

But The Fillmore Charlotte got creative, kicking off its new “Live in the Lot” series this month.

Fans can watch concerts and comedy acts in a socially distanced outdoor setup in the space between The Fillmore and its sister venue, The Underground.

The venue will use contactless ticket scanning, and outdoor seating has been arranged for groups of two or four. There will also be hand-sanitizing stations available.

Face coverings or masks are mandatory and must be worn at all times except while eating and drinking.

First Look at our "Live In The Lot" setup! Our socially distanced outdoor shows begin THIS weekend! Catch comedy shows...
