UPDATE Blues on the Mall 2020

June 19, 2020

Blues on the Mall

After the epic announcement to move this legendary event back downtown the pandemic hit!  All of the amazing Blues acts we had scheduled for 2020 cancelled their tours.  We were forced to cancel the June and July shows.  The whole team here at Classic Rock 97 LAV is working hard behind the scenes to plan and produce some version of ‘Blues’ this summer or fall.

Due to licensing and artist planning we will make the call to ‘go or no go’ about 30 days out from our original dates.  We are working with the city on potentially moving 3 or 4 nights to September but it’s difficult to know when the crowd restrictions will be lifted.

As always, stay tuned to Classic Rock 97 LAV for further updates!​

Please Frequent Our Fine Blues Sponsors:  Scully’s Statewide Moving and 97 LAV Present: The Miller Lite Blues on the Mall brought to you by Orion Construction and the blues after party at the Flamingo Lounge.
