Are these private VIP boxes the future of live concerts?

This concert venue may have a very important solution to live music in the coronavirus era.

About 2,500 people watched Sam Fender perform from 500 individual VIP-like platforms and pens in one of the UK’s first properly social-distanced concerts.

The outdoor show on August 11 was held at the Virgin Money Unity Arena, in Gosforth Park, Newcastle, where the private platforms and pens were all spaced about 6 feet apart. Boxes like these could be the future of live music, as COVID-19 limits the gathering of large groups, potentially for years.

“We are delighted to play a part in bringing back live music events as we start to emerge from lockdown,” Helen Page, group brand and marketing director at Virgin Money, told the BBC.
