Wow.

Despite widespread cancellations of sporting and entertainment events across Colorado and the country due to coronavirus concerns, Thursday’s Post Malone concert at the Pepsi Center is still a go.

The venue said on social media that it was going on schedule. The stop is part of Post Malone’s Runaway Tour.

“We continue to monitor the current COVID-19 situation with local, state and federal authorities,” the Pepsi Center said in a statement. “Please continue to monitor venue websites & social media channels regarding any updates to upcoming events.”

Earlier Thursday, the Pepsi Center said Blake Shelton’s scheduled concert on Saturday had been postponed. The venue said purchased tickets would be honored at a makeup date next year. Refunds will also be available.

The Nuggets and Avalanche won’t be playing games at the Pepsi Center for the foreseeable future after their respective leagues suspended play indefinitely.

Gov. Jared Polis said during a press conference on Wednesday that people over 60 or those with chronic health conditions should avoid large public events.
