UPDATE: Buckcherry + Hinder Postpone Maine Show
Buckcherry will be pushing their Maine show further down the calendar.
The wait for live music will continue. Buckcherry and Hinder have postponed their show for a second time. Their show at Aura in Portland was originally set for May 24. It later was rescheduled to November 21. A new date has been set for May 22, 2021.
Fans are urged to hold on to their tickets as they'll be honored on the new date. Those who want a refund will have an opportunity to request their money back when a new date is announced. If the show is ultimately canceled, tickets will be refunded.
For eight months concert venues have sat empty. Many concert goers are wondering when concerts will become safe to attend again. According to a writeup from Huffpost, health experts say “No large gatherings such as concerts should be held at least till the middle or end of next year.”
Meanwhile, concert venues around the country are closing their doors permanently. Back in July a prominent Portland venue, Port City Music Hall, announced their closure. On Facebook, the venue said: "Live music venues were the first businesses to close at the start of the pandemic, and we’ll be the last to reopen. Port City Music Hall unfortunately cannot survive this crisis without revenue — and no end in sight."
The venue hosted shows featuring local bands, to national touring acts.
In the Facebook announcement, the venue sighted an industry-wide lack pandemic relief money; saying "if there isn’t some industry-targeted relief soon we will not be the last venue to close its doors in Maine."
