“We’ve hosted more than 25 live AEW shows at Daily’s Place this past year and drive-in concerts as well, and we’re excited for the return of a full house for live music,” said Chad Johnson, senior vice president of sales and service and chief content officer for the Jaguars and Bold Events. “We’ll continue to employ a host of health and safety measures throughout the venue and will expect fans to do their part by staying away if they’re feeling unwell but are excited to welcome artists back to Jacksonville.”
“Jacksonville is back!” said Mayor Lenny Curry. “As our community rebounds from the last year, I am excited to see live music return to Downtown Jacksonville. I am grateful for the hard work from Bold Events, ASM Global, and all of our partners in putting this concert together and am confident that we will emerge as a premiere destination for sports and entertainment.”
