Venture Richmond Events regrets that we must cancel the August 26, 2020, Billy Strings Friday Cheers concert.

Following careful and considered consultation with our valued community partners, as well as the unknown progression of the opening Phases of the Commonwealth due to COVID-19, we continue to be concerned by the uncertain health situation going forward. Venture Richmond Events would love nothing more than to host a Friday Cheers concert with Billy Strings on Brown’s Island and we hope that in 2021 his band will be able to return to Richmond.

Those who have purchased a ticket online will get an auto ticket refund within 10-14 business days. For 2020 Friday Cheers Season Pass holders, you may carryover your season pass until 2021. New laminate passes will be mailed to you in the spring of 2021. Or, you may request a season pass refund, which will be credited to the credit card used for that purchase. Season pass buyers must notify the Ticketstobuy office (only by email at on your decision of either option by July 31, 2020.

From The Band:

We’re so bummed to have to cancel the Richmond show. We were so hoping to be able to play for y’all! We promise to get back up there as soon as we safely can. In the meantime, the band is getting together next month for some shows and you can watch them live!! More about that below. Love y’all ❤️

The Streaming Strings Tour is everything you love about the Billy Strings live show, without the crowds. We hope you can join us July 16-26 for any (or all) of our full band, live-stream performances across 5 empty venues around Nashville. There will be exclusive tour merch, posters and special guest appearances for each of these 9 shows, and they only cost $9.99 per show with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Backline, ACLU and NAACP LDF.

Tickets and more info can be found here.

Remember to “Save the Date” for Friday Cheers May – June, 2021! We look forward to seeing you then!

April 29, 2020:

For the safety of both our patrons and staff, and in accordance with the Governor’s “Stay at Home” order, currently in effect until June 10, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the June Friday Cheers events (June 5, 12, 19, 26). As most of you know, our May concerts were previously cancelled.

We know how excited you (and we!) were about this season’s incredible line up and all of us at Venture Richmond Events are working hard with these bands to reschedule them for 2021.

If you have already purchased Friday Cheers tickets online you can request a refund through or by emailing beginning Thursday, April 30, 2020.

Our previous update below provides information about Season Passes.

We appreciate and thank you for your continued support of Friday Cheers. We’re going to miss you and can’t wait to bring great music back to Brown’s Island. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy. We’ll see you as soon as we can.

March 31, 2020:

Friday Cheers fans are devoted and unwavering, but in these times we must all be mindful that the COVID-19 virus has dramatically changed our daily social interactions and we must all follow the directives of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s stay-at-home executive order through June 10.

The governor’s order prohibits all public and private in-person gatherings of more than 10 individuals.

With these guidelines, and for the safety of both our patrons and staff, we have made the following changes to the May Friday Cheers schedule:

  • Jade Bird with Sweet Potatoes that was previously scheduled for Friday, May 1, 2020 is cancelled.
  • Billy Strings with Andrew Alli and Josh Small is rescheduled for Wednesday, August 26, 2020.
  • RVA Music Night – Palm Palm is rescheduled for Friday, May 21, 2021.
  • Jay Som with Angelica Garcia – We are working to reschedule this show for Friday Cheers 2021 and will provide details when finalized.

Venture Richmond Events staff is working to reschedule Friday Cheers’ early June artist performances, and remain cautiously optimistic about performances later in June.

2020 Friday Cheers Season Pass holders can still use their pass for the remaining June Friday Cheers events and for the rescheduled Billy Strings event on August 26, 2020.

In addition, as a thank you for your understanding during this difficult time, 2020 Season Pass holders will receive a 50% discount off a 2021 Friday Cheers Season Pass! will email current Season Pass holders with information about the discount which can be used when purchasing a 2021 Season Pass.

Those who have purchased a ticket online for any one of these May events may request a refund by emailing beginning Friday, April 3, 2020.

Venture Richmond Events, LLC and its staff work to produce an excellent experience for you on Brown’s Island, but we take the safety and health of our guests, staff, and community very seriously, and appreciate your continued support moving forward.

At this time, all other events produced by Venture Richmond Events, LLC, including the June Friday Cheers events, remain scheduled as planned, but are subject to change. Again, thank you for your continued support of Friday Cheers.
