A new outdoor music venue opens in Connecticut tomorrow (Friday, April 30). New Haven's Westville Music Bowl, formerly the Connecticut Tennis Center, was originally scheduled to open in May of 2020, but that was pushed back because of COVID. Now Gov't Mule will play the venue's first show, to a limited capacity, socially distanced crowd. Tickets are on sale now. They also play two additional nights, May 1 (tickets) and May 2, which is with Ann Wilson of Heart. (tickets).
"In normal times it would be incredibly exciting,” Mayor Justin Elicker told New Haven Register. "In pandemic times, it’s even more so because of our slow walk towards reopening and revitalizing the economy. The venue is particularly good for insuring the safety of participants because it’s outdoors and they’re not filling it to full capacity."
