Singapore.- The casino resort Marina Bay Sands (MBS) has announced it will host its first live event in nine months this week.

The complex will open its performance venue Sands Theatre, which has been closed since March, for two concerts. Attendance will be limited to 500 people.

The operator said the concerts will take place amid strict social distancing measures, including designated zones with a maximum of 50 people in each. Seats will be located at least one meter apart. Attendees will also have to present a valid negative antigen rapid test (ART) in order to gain entry.

The “Back to Live” concerts will feature a lineup of local Singapore artists.

MBS senior vice president of resort operations, Paul Town, said: “This event is a great step towards the gradual return of live entertainment in Singapore, and we are privileged to have been the only venue chosen for an event of this nature.

“As we reopen our entertainment venues in a responsible manner, we hope to instill confidence to welcome back concert-goers as they experience the best performances in this renewed environment.”
