Old Concrete Street Amphitheater has postponed the Cody Johnson & Friends concert scheduled for Saturday night.

City and county officials issued an order limiting public gatherings to 500 people or fewer, less than two hours before the concert.

Calls to Old Concrete Street Amphitheater have gone unanswered.

The order, signed by Nueces Co. Judge Barbara Canales, Corpus Christi City Manager Peter Zanoni and Mayor Joe McComb, affects indoor and outdoor events for the next six days.

Orders such as this one look to curb the potential spread of COVID-19 by not allowing big groups to congregate and pass the illness, which can be passed through contact, be it cough or touch. It is based on recent CDC guidelines in relation to COVID-19.

If the venue had chosen to go ahead with the show, only 500 people would have been allowed in, per the order.

The venue is looking to reschedule the event.

Old Concrete Street Amphitheater officials had sad as recently as Friday that they intended to go ahead with the show, with additional hand-washing stations.

Fans from around the state, and even as far out-of-state as Colorado, were upset by the postponement. Tune into KRIS 6 News tonight to see what they told us.
