According to the press release, the Aretha staff will be following state and local COVID-19 protocols and guidelines, meaning the 6,000-capacity amphitheater will be operating at 20% of its maximum, which is why ticket prices for the series have increased from $29 to $50.
However, this could change if/when Michigan reaches its vaccination benchmark, which will lift all COVID-19 capacity restrictions and gathering limitations once 70% of all Michigan residents are fully vaccinated.
