LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) – After a year of lockdowns, many are ready to step out this summer.
The Iroquois Amphitheater announced Wednesday that it would help people do this by providing live entertainment through September.
Some performances, such as REO Speedwagon and Ani Difranco & the Indigo Girls, are already sold out.
Events begin with boxing on July 2nd.
Louisville’s Carlos Dixon will defend his junior featherweight title on his first attempt at the amphitheater in live sports.
Dixon said he was ready after a year of pandemic restrictions affected his ability to fight.
“Not being able to do something you love, being able to have something that was taken away from you, that you had no power over,” said Dixon. “Well, it was a good thing, a hidden blessing I think because we were working and pushing all the time. We didn’t really have breaks. We had our foot completely on the accelerator. “
Music headliners start the next day from September 3rd to 26th.
In the center, the live theater returns to the venue with a performance of The Wizard of Oz.
