Keep The Concourse Going

COVID-19 has taken a toll on many people and industries. The live music industry is no exception, and will most likely be the last industry to recover and get back to normal. The Concourse is the largest independently owned and operated venue in Knoxville, and due to the health department guidelines as well as us prioritizing the health and safety of our staff and patrons, we have closed our doors and paused live events for a second time. 

Like many independent venues, the limited resources offered by the government are not applicable to us, so we are not able to receive any assistance at this time. There are organizations fighting for venues like us- head to NIVA’s website to learn more about how to contact your state reps and join the fight.

Like everyone- we have rent, utilities, and insurance that we have to keep paying, while we are closed and not earning any income, in order to keep the venue. We know this is a trying time for so many, but every dollar counts, and every share spreads the word and helps us reach even more people. We just want to be here to continue to provide you with amazing experiences once we are able to safely do so.

Thank you and love to you all,

The Concourse Family
