Live entertainment returns to Grundy County, Tennessee at The Caverns Above Ground Amphitheater with beloved Texas singer-songwriter Robert Earl Keen (April 9), Americana stalwarts Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors (May 2), and a unique night of dark comedy with Last Podcast on The Left (May 15). The events will take place outdoors and in pods on a hillside above The Caverns cave music venue and overlooking the beautiful Payne's Cove.
Friday, April 9 — Robert Earl Keen — A bonafide hero of the Americana music scene, Keen is ready to get back to the stage, “I'm excited to be bringing the STARLIGHT TOUR to The Caverns Above Ground Amphitheater and to return to live music safely for our fans. It's going to be a lively night under the stars!"
Sunday, May 2 — Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors — With his new album, Dragons, Drew’s songwriting exhibits a careful sense of craft with his ability to take the joys, struggles, and specific moments of his own life to create vivid portraits stretched across a wide sonic canvas.
Saturday, May 15 — Last Podcast On The Left — This show will be The Caverns first ever live podcast event. This epic evening is a live show of the popular Last Podcast On The Left heard nationwide on Spotify. Hosts Ben Kissel, Marcus Parks and Henry Zebrowski cover dark subjects like cults, killers, or cryptid encounters while inviting you to laugh into the abyss that is the dark side of humanity.
For all shows, guests will arrive at staggered times, be asked COVID-19 screening questions, receive a temperature check, and enjoy the show from 2-person, 4-person and 6-person socially-distanced pods. Pods are spaced with a minimum of 6’ distance between each other to maintain social distancing. The events are "bring your own chair."
Masks will be mandatory, except when guests are in their pods. All concessions and merchandise will be ordered through an app and delivered contactless to pods eliminating lines and limiting the need for guests to leave pods and miss the show.
While the entertainment is above ground, restrooms will be used inside The Caverns to give guests an opportunity to duck below the surface to see the world-famous, subterranean music venue.
The highest priority of The Caverns is the safety of guests, crew and artists. As such, the venue is following guidance provided by the CDC and the State of Tennessee’s Tennessee Pledge for reopening.
