Chaifetz Arena Postponing All Events Through April 30
ST. LOUIS (March 12, 2020) — Saint Louis University and its Chaifetz Arena management partner, Spectra, announced today that all scheduled events at Chaifetz Arena will be postponed through April 30, 2020. This decision was made with the health and safety of event guests as the top priority. It also aligns with the University’s suspension of in-person classes through that same date, and with the City of St. Louis’ new prohibition of events of 1,000 people or more.
The events include:
- March 20: Festival of Laughs
- March 21: Sturgill Simpson concert
- March 22: Varsity Cheerleading
- March 28: Blues Fest
- April 1: Second Chance Job Fair
- April 5: Madi Gras Cheerleading
- April 8: All Elite Wrestling
- April 11: NF concert
- April 12: The Gathering Easter Service
- April 17: Legends of Hip Hop
- April 24: Millennium Tour
Chaifetz Arena management will be working with the promoters of the events to reschedule as many of the events as possible for later in 2020. Guests are urged to retain their tickets until new dates are announced.
“The representatives of all of these events understand our need to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus,” said Chaifetz Arena General manager Jeremy Huelsing. “We will email guests directly regarding the status of each event as details are confirmed, and the most up-to-date status will be available on our social media accounts and website. We appreciate the public’s understanding.”
