Live music venues are still shut down due to COVID-19 restrictions, but the people at Riviera Theatre are hoping for the best and rescheduling dates now.

Remember just a few years ago when we would start to mark all the concerts that we wanted to go to off of our calendar at this time of year.  By the end of January or February, we could already imagine that we would be completely broke from buying concert tickets in June.

Then, at the beginning of March last year, we lost a lot of scheduled dates at concert and live music venues across the country and Western New York. At this point, it's either a really good sign or an incredible amount of optimism that the Riviera Theatre has announced that they've begun rescheduling dates for the upcoming summer and into fall

According to WIVB, Travis Tritt is just one of the many dates that will be rescheduled.  We can look for him at the Riviera Theatre on Sunday, October 3, 2021, at 7:00 PM.

Here is the list of current (as of 1/12/21) rescheduled dates according to their website:
