Here is a look at what’s ahead in Phoenix

PHOENIX – After more than a year of very few concerts, events, festivals and shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more event producers, theaters and venues are moving ahead with planning events, festivals, exhibitions and concerts in venues like ASU Gammage, Arizona Federal Theater, Ak-Chin Pavilion, and Gila River Arena have their major events scheduled for late summer or early fall, including Hamilton at ASU Gammage, comedian Sebastian Maniscalco at Arizona Federal, Dierks Bentley at Ak-Chin Pavilion, and Harry Styles on the Gila River Arena. Smaller venues such as The Nash, Arizona Broadway Theater, and The Phoenix Theater Company held outdoor events during the winter and spring and either have shows or are planning to do so soon. “We did outdoor shows in the garden of the Arizona Jewish Historical Society, and even there the idea of ​​having live music was so exciting. And bringing them back to the venue is the atmosphere we’ve always had. We’re really looking forward to it, “said Steve Maun, Manager Director at The Nash. As for outdoor festivals, the Arizona Taco Festival recently announced that it will return to Salt River Fields on October 23rd and 25th. Advance ticket sales are available. HDE Agency, which hosts several events in the East Valley, recently announced its first Canacopia Festival in Mesa on June 5th. Other producers have dates eyeing for fall but waiting for city approval. “Events quite normal, I think they will be as normal as possible, that is, go through a box office, through the front gate, see live entertainment, food too eat, drink drinks, and possibly play a few lawn games. I see that as normal, “said Landon Evans, Creative Director at HDE Agency.” But I won’t see the 10, 15, 20,000-person events until early 2022. “Some cities are also planning July 4th celebrations, many of which were canceled last year.
