Granger Smith Railyard concert canceled because of COVID-19 case increase

Granger Smith

Granger Smith was scheduled to play a concert at the Railyard on Thursday, but an increase in COVID-19 cases led the show to be canceled.

The Granger Smith concert set for the Railyard on Thursday has been canceled because of the local increase in COVID-19 cases.

The concert by the Texas country singer would have been the first major show in Lincoln since March. But it was canceled following a meeting with city officials.

“We met with the city last week,” said Katy Martin of Hurrdat, the company that manages the Railyard. “They were going to let us do it if we could pull off the spacing and seating.

"But with the current COVID rise in the city of Lincoln, the right thing to do was postpone the concert.”

The Railyard would have staged the show with reduced capacity and assigned seating, spaced apart to meet social distancing requirements, Martin said.

Ticket refunds are available at the point of purchase.
