Big concert gatherings might be resuming this year, with at least one big national tour scheduling its kick-off at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville this summer.

Singer Michael Bublé's promoters announced Thursday his “An Evening With Michael Bublé” tour will begin in Jacksonville on August 13.

The news release makes no mention of capacity restrictions, mandatory masks, or other social distancing measures.

The VyStar Arena’s maximum capacity is listed as 15,000, although a concert configuration would likely be less than that.

Bublé’s new tour schedule includes two dozen American cities. The promoters said tickets sold for previous dates will be honored.
