Historic Iroquois Amphitheater to host full slate of community events, concerts beginning July 2
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 23, 2021) – Mayor Greg Fischer and Councilman Kevin Triplett today joined concert promoters, local business owners and members of the performing arts community to announce a return – at full capacity – to live performances at the historic Iroquois Amphitheater this summer.
“Today’s long-awaited announcement is evidence that our city is opening back up and that vaccines work,” said the Mayor. “To see the Amphitheater reopen to full capacity, with this great slate of shows and events, is exciting for the residents of south Louisville and the entire community.”
The 2021 season will kick off on July Friday, July 2 with “Return to Greatness,” the venue’s first-ever foray into live sports. The boxing card will feature Louisville’s own Carlos Dixon as he defends his WBC Junior Featherweight Championship.
The next night, Saturday, July 3, the live concert season begins with a performance by JJ Grey and Mofro with Southern Avenue. In all, 15 live musical events are scheduled for the Iroquois Amphitheater season with folk singer Amos Lee closing out the slate on Sunday, September 26.
Two shows – REO Speedwagon on Sunday, July 25 and Ani DiFranco and the Indigo Girls on Saturday, September 11 – are already sold out. The Amphitheater’s season also features a return to live theatre performance when ACT Louisville’s production of “The Wizard of Oz” takes the stage from July 30-August 2.
