Playing with Fire 2020
Rescheduled to 2021
OMAHA, Neb. – After much consideration Playing with Fire has determined it is in the best interest of our fans, artists, and volunteers to postpone the 2020 concert series until 2021.
This year’s concerts had been scheduled for July 24 and 25, and August 22.
The free annual concerts have been held every summer since 2004, presenting local, national, and international musical artists, drawing thousands of fans. Earlier this year, the Playing with Fire Concert Series had announced its move to the Capitol District for 2020.
“Our top priority is the health and safety of our fans, our volunteers, and our performers,” said Jeff Davis, Playing with Fire’s promoter. “While we are disappointed in changing our plans this year, we are pleased to announce that all artists scheduled for 2020 are reconfirmed for 2021. We are excited to have added an additional date in 2021 date as well.”
The confirmed dates for Playing with Fire 2021 are Friday and Saturday, July 16 and 17, and Friday and Saturday, August 13 and 14. The concerts will be held in the Capitol District, 10th & Capitol, in downtown Omaha.
