Christopher Cross performs at the Paramount Theatre on November 4, 2021 in Austin, Texas.

More big musical acts are coming, too. Another concert will be announced Monday, Shanahan says.

Southwest Florida Event Center announced last month that it would be reopening in March, almost two years after closing during the first wave of the pandemic.

The Bonita Beach Road venue closed its doors in May 2020, citing concerns over the future of the music industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. It had been closed temporarily since mid-March due to social distancing and Florida’s stay-at-home order.
