As reported earlier today (May 30), the new estimate for the Arkansas River crest in Little Rock is now expected on Wednesday, June 5 at 29 feet.
“At the current levels, coupled with the forecast from NOAA, we feel confident that none of the critical operating components of the stage, the seating area, the pit or the loading areas will be adversely affected by rising water at the time of the Judas Priest Concert on Saturday, June 1,” said Jim Rice, COO, Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Based on the current situation and forecast, the concert will proceed as planned.
LRCVB operations will continue to monitor both NOAA reports and the venue daily and remain in close contact with the concert promoter so that if anything changes, ticketholders can be notified as quickly as possible. Additionally, the media will be updated as well as our websites and social media postings.
The box office will open at 12pm on Saturday for concertgoers who prefer to purchase tickets upon arrival. Gates will open at 5pm. Show starts at 7:30pm.
