Live music returns to the Oak Mountain Amphitheater


BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (WBRC) – Fun returns this weekend at the Oak Mountain Amphitheater. Three Doors Down will entertain thousands of guests on Saturday in the first on-site concert since the start of the pandemic.

“We’re thrilled – it’s been a year since the concerts,” said James Carter, of Lt. Pelham’s Police Department.

Pelham Police say at least 6,000 tickets have already been sold for the event and the department is preparing for thousands more to come to town for upcoming concerts.

“The Fish next weekend – Chris Stapleton later in the year – those are already full. That’s 10,000 people. So that area is around 119 – we’re looking at 15,000 people on the roads, ”Carter said.

The crowds are driving extra traffic and Pelham PD is reminding locals to watch out for extra drivers on concert nights. And they will be resources in place for those heading to the area.

“Particularly now because we have construction going on on State Park Road – just keep this heavy congestion in mind,” Carter said. “We will have officers and additional signage. “

If you are going to the event, the amphitheater has updated the safety guidelines.

Staff posted on Facebook that a clear bag policy will apply if you bring items with you. You can only make contactless payment on site. All points of sale will only accept credit or debit cards. Your electronic tickets are the only tickets accepted, printed matter will not be accepted.

The police also ask you to hydrate as it will be hot outside and not to leave valuables in your car. Officers will patrol during the concert.
