Randy Owen of Alabama's Band was scheduled to take the stage along with John Michael Montgomery at the Thunder Valley Amphitheatre.

BRISTOL, Tenn. — The Thunder Valley Amphitheatre, presented by Ballad Health, and the band, ALABAMA, have mutually agreed to postpone its “50th Anniversary Tour” scheduled stop in August 2020, to the new date of Saturday, August 14, 2021.

The highly-anticipated concert, which had fans in the Appalachian Highlands region excited to enjoy the iconic Grammy-winning group's signature style of music, is not structured to align with social distancing measures under the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines, according to a BMS statement.

All previously purchased tickets and parking passes will be honored on Saturday, August 14, 2021, and guests are encouraged to keep their original tickets, BMS said.

Guests who purchased their tickets directly from Ticketmaster and the Thunder Valley Amphitheatre ticket office will received an email in the coming days with other options available to them. Those account holders may email with questions.

Additionally, Bristol Dragway officials also will move the 2020 Bristol Chevy Show and Thunder Valley Mayhem to a 2021 date. The dates for the 2021 Bristol Chevy Show and Thunder Valley Mayhem will be announced in the future.

“Due to the interactive and close nature of concert goers and those who attend the Bristol Chevy Show, with the car show, pit access and swap meet, it’s unfortunately not feasible to host these events in a safe manner under the current guidelines and protocols,” said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager, Bristol Dragway and Thunder Valley Amphitheatre. “The safety of our guests and participants is our top priority and we thank everyone involved for their patience and understanding. We look forward to bringing these popular events back to Thunder Valley in 2021.”
