Legends in Concert closing down shows for at least 3 weeks


MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Legends in Concert will be closing down its shows after Monday night’s performance for three to eight weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The concert hall is shutting down all locations nationwide, including Myrtle Beach. Employees were told on Monday evening, according to Chris Tucker, general manager.

“We are prepared to move any scheduled show to a later date maybe in the summer or fall and if they do want a refund we are happy to refund 100%,” Tucker said.

Leaders in the tourism industry say shutting down will hurt business. “The tourism industry is going to suffer a little bit. Not to say we won’t bounce back,” Tucker said. “We are eager to reopen and are going to be watching the situation daily and updating our cast and crew and our guest as well.”

Legends in Concert is celebrating their 25th anniverary. While disappointed to shut down, the business is prepared to take recommended precautions following the CDC’s guidelines.

President Trump has recommended no gatherings of more than 10 people, the CDC recommends no gatherings of 50 or more, and the governor of South Carolina has said no gatherings of more than 100.

Legends in Concert will take further action after three weeks if needed. Ticket refunds can be made by calling the box office at 843-238-7827 or email infomyrtlebeach@legendsinconcert.com. For more information, check on their website here.
