A Southern rock bonanza featuring Blackberry Smoke and two locally grown shows are the first to be added to the summer season at Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center.

With coronavirus pandemic concerns dictating the arc of the summer season, the venue’s mainstage will also play host to a COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

CMAC is also requiring proof of vaccination to attend these shows.

While festivals fall by the wayside, the promoters for Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center say the venue just outside of Canandaigua will have a substantial season to announce shortly.

Three country shows are already on the schedule, holdovers from last summer, when all CMAC concerts were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. As was the case in 2020, Luke Combs will do two shows this year, on Aug. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m. Thomas Rhett will play Aug. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

Ratt is joined by a lineup of '80s-era metal of varying degrees of volume and hair in Tom Keifer's Cinderella, Skid Row and Slaughter. That show is at 7 p.m. June 13.

Comedians Steve Martin and Martin Short is the latest show to be announced for the Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center.
