The 2020 Penn Community Bank Amphitheater Concerts are officially cancelled as the pandemic continues.
Bensalem Mayor Joe DiGirolamo explained in a letter to the community Wednesday.
“This decision was quite difficult,” said DiGirolamo. “Our team continued to monitor Governor Wolf’s Covid-19 3-stage re-opening approach very carefully, and had hoped upon hope we could open at full capacity with no restrictions.”
Bucks County will be enter the green phase of the governor’s reopen plan on Friday, June 26. But even in the green phase, social gatherings are limited to 250 people.
As the Penn Community Bank Amphitheater can hold nearly 2,000 people, holding the concerts would be “not reasonable.”
In the past, the PCB Amphitheater Concerts have hosted official tribute bands for the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, and Bob Seger.
“Hopefully 2021 will bring normalcy and we’ll be back with the great tribute band experience all have come to know and love!” said DiGirolamo. “Until such time, stay safe, healthy and enjoy your summer.”
Season passes for 2020 will carry over and be viable for 2021. Alternatively, season pass holders can ask for a refund.
Either way, anyone with a 2020 season pass must send an email requesting their choice to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15, 2020. Anyone with quesitons can call 215-633-3600.
