NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - The smaller version of NEBRASKAland DAYS will come complete with a pair of reduced capacity concerts on August 14th and 15th.

Legendary band .38 Special will kick off the Viaero Summer Jam Concert Series on Friday, August 14. The series will conclude with Country Star Granger Smith on Saturday, August 15th.

”Music is an essential component of our heritage, and if at all possible we wanted to give fans the opportunity to see a show while being responsible about how we go about it,” said Executive Director David Fudge.

The reopening plan for the Wild West Arena calls for capacities capped at 75 percent. But organizers have committed to operating well below that limit.

“This isn’t the year to push the envelope,” said Fudge. “Our shows will have a special seating plan utilizing picnic tables on the arena floor, each spaced out and limited to 6 people per table. So we’ll be closer to 25 percent capacity for these two shows.

With sales in excess of 20 million, most associate the band .38 Special with their arena-rock pop smashes, “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “If I’d Been the One,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Chain Lightnin',” “Second Chance,” and more hits that remain a staple at radio, immediately recognizable from the first opening chord, and paving the way to their present-day.
