First concert in over a year to be held in Huntington

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Live music will return to Huntington for the first time in over a year on Friday for a concert that will mark the city’s 150th anniversary.

The Herald-Dispatch reports that doors will open at John C. Edwards Stadium an hour before the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

It will be the first major musical event held by the Marshall Artists Series since the beginning of the pandemic.

Angela Jones, a spokesperson for the series, told the Herald-Dispatch the “Mountain Stage” concert will feature local indie-rock band Ona.

“It’s been a while for people, and to be able to do something in the Joan C. Edwards Stadium is super exciting for us because it’s a new venue for us to do any kind of entertainment,” Jones told the paper.

Seating will be socially distanced and tickets are $60.
