Oliver Hazard to perform first-ever concert at Fifth Third Field
Fifth Third Field
Rise Up LIVE! at Fifth Third Field featuring Oliver Hazard takes place on Thursday, September 24 and spotlights the hometown trio indie folk band from Waterville, Ohio.
The Toledo Mud Hens and Buckeye Community Arts Network (BCAN) are excited to announce the first-ever concert at Fifth Third Field on Thursday, September 24, 2020. 'Rise Up LIVE! at Fifth Third Field featuring Oliver Hazard' spotlights the hometown trio indie folk band from Waterville, Ohio.
Their music is a ramshackle of uprooted-folk stomp, mixed with classic Americana spirit and humble folk tradition. The band’s debut album, 34 N River, is accumulating millions of streams on Spotify. Oliver Hazard has performed at national music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Americanafest and played to a sold-out crowd last summer at the Holy Toledo! 'Rooftop Sessions' in Hensville.
This one-night-only live concert event at Fifth Third Field will be the first socially distanced concert to be held in Toledo. The outfield will be divided into individual square pods that can accommodate up to eight guests. Each pod will have a 10-foot safe path surrounding all sides. Socially distanced seating is also available along the first base side of the seating bowl.
TICKET UPDATE: On-field pods are SOLD OUT. Seats in the seating bowl are still available.
The stage is in left field with the band performing beneath the 2,500 square foot video board which will carry a live feed from BCAN to offer a full concert experience while keeping guests spread out throughout the stadium. With current safety measures in place, maximum capacity to the event will be limited. Tickets must be purchased in advance as tickets will not be available at the gate.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 6:30 p.m.
BCAN: Buckeye Community Arts Network (BCAN) will broadcast the concert LIVE. 'Rise Up LIVE' at Fifth Third Field featuring Oliver Hazard will air exclusively on Buckeye Broadband Channel 109/609 HD on Thursday, September 24 at 7 p.m.
Toledo Mud Hens Director of Strategic Planning and Projects Mike Keedy says the partnership with BCAN is the perfect fit to provide the Oliver Hazard concert to the masses. “With safety protocols in place we have a limited capacity available. On-field pods have sold out and there are a limited number of seats still available in the seating bowl. We are very excited to be able to offer this experience into everyone’s home.”
“BCAN is proud to partner with the Toledo Mud Hens for the first-ever concert at Fifth Third Field,” said LeAnne Markins, Buckeye Broadband market manager. “We’re privileged to offer a great experience in-park and a viewing alternative to those who were not able to purchase a ticket or didn’t feel comfortable attending in person.”
