AEW has began selling tickets for the August 27 Dynamite at the Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. The open-air venue will be at 10-15% max capacity for the show.
In a press release issued today, AEW said that it’s abiding with state and local regulations as well as CDC guidelines to allow a select number of physically distanced seating pods which will be available for sale in groups of two, three, four, and six.
The first show will have a max crowd of 10% and then going forward, as long as safety protocols are followed, a max of 15% capacity will be permitted for all live events at the Daily’s Place.
Limited tickets will go on sale tomorrow, Friday, at 10AM ET via AEWTIX.com and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets start at $30 not including service charges or fees.
Guests will be required to wear face coverings that cover the nose and mouth, and to physically distance from any person who is not a member of their pod. Guests will also be asked not to attend the day of the show if they have COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19 or have had close contact exposure to someone who they know has COVID-19 or symptoms. In addition, all guests will have their temperature scanned prior to entry.
An increased number of hand sanitizing stations will be available, and floor markings will also be used to assist with physical distancing. Industrial fans were also added this past year to further improve air circulation at the open-air venue.
As a further safeguard, all tickets will be mobile and may only be purchased online at AEWTIX.com and Ticketmaster.com (no box office sales). Daily’s Place will also transition to cashless payment and mobile ordering for most transactions, including food and merchandise purchases.
“We’ve missed the incredible energy of our fans at shows, and from what we’ve heard from them, they’ve missed being with us. With our enhanced safety measures and outdoor venue, we look forward to welcoming our fans back to become part of the action in-person,” said Tony Khan, AEW President and CEO.
“Please be assured, we are mindful and respectful of the situation,” Khan added. “The health and safety of our AEW family and our fans remains our highest priority. Our leadership team and medical staff have adjusted our operations for limited, physically distanced fans in an outdoor, open-air setting in compliance with the most current state and local regulations and CDC guidelines. We can’t wait for the August 27 DYNAMITE, as the road to ALL OUT will represent the beginning of a new chapter in AEW history.”
