VON BRAUN CENTER ADDS OUTDOOR STAGE
.38 Special among first acts to be announced.
Huntsville, Ala. (March 8, 2021) – The Von Braun Center (VBC) is excited to open a temporary outdoor stage - 3rd Rock - in the parking lot on Clinton Avenue.
The first two shows to announce performances on the new stage are Blackberry Smoke & North Mississippi Allstars (performing on April 17, 2021), and .38 Special (performing on May 14, 2021). Tickets for both events will be available at the VBC Box Office and online at ticketmaster.com.
"We have been working with artists and promoters to find creative ways to bring touring shows back to Huntsville," commented VBC Assistant Director Mike Vojticek. "We feel the outdoor concert experience provides an exciting and safe environment for both the artists and patrons."
The outdoor stage will remain setup through the summer, with additional performances being announced on later dates. Reserved seating for the performances will be setup in Pod groupings.
"We are working with multiple artists of various music genres," Vojticek continued. "We anticipate hosting a dozen shows over the next six months."
Playing into the space-theme of the Von Braun Center facility and the new music hall - Mars Music Hall - that opened in January 2021, the temporary outdoor stage is named 3rd Rock - a reference to Earth's location from the Sun. The logo for 3rd Rock illustrates the two closer planets, Mercury and Venus, as eighth note music symbols.
The VBC is estimating around 12 shows to be scheduled at 3rd Rock before the temporary venue closes.
