West Reading Avenues Fall 2021 - 32

Events
Spectacular Santander!
T
By the Team at the Santander Arena and Santander Performing Arts Center
he windows of the Santander
Arena are finally covered with
upcoming shows and the
marquee out front has more content
listed than ever before. But it was a long
road to this point from March of 2020.
Last fall the two downtown venues were
completely dark. There were no shows
of any kind and no Royals games as the
entire season was cancelled. For the first
half of 2021, there was little hope that
the venues would be able to open their
doors for our 20th Anniversary Season.
Week by week, things started to get
better as summer approached and
regulations began to be rolled back. It
became clear that the community would
be able to come together again this fall
for concerts, comedy, and sporting
events. The two venues went over a
year without welcoming fans for events
and had numerous shows postponed or
even cancelled during it all. But, despite
all of that, the Santander Arena and
Santander Performing Arts came out
on the other side.
30 Avenues Fall 2021
It was a difficult year for both the fulltime
and part-time staff, but the team
behind the scenes of the venues remained
optimistic and are carrying that feeling
into the 20th Anniversary Season. Our
team is strong, and their dedication to
re-welcoming fans is a big part of what
kept them going through the pandemic.
Throughout the area, it's great to see
friends opening back up. The Reading
Fightin Phills have returned with their
full season, Reverb is hosting full capacity
indoor concerts for large crowds, Berks
Art council has concerts kicking off in
the band shell and the Reading Symphony
Orchestra is back in our theater. National
artists like Blackberry Smoke, Judas
Priest, Joan Jett, Il Divo, Boyz II Men,
and Rauw Alejandro are already on sale
for upcoming performances. Broadway
is returning with Rent, Jersey Boys, Cats
and Blue Man Group in the theater.
We've all been working together to
get through this pandemic, and now
it's time to get back to normal the best
way we know how: through live sports
and entertainment.
As Santander Arena and the Reading
Royals celebrate their 20th Anniversary
Season, we're kicking it off as big as we
can make it. It begins with Judas Priest
performing on September 8 - just one
day after the Arena originally opened its
doors back in 2001. On October 23, the
Royals will drop the puck at home for
the first time since March 8, 2020. And,
if that wasn't exciting enough, with help
from the Hawley and Myrtle Quier Fund
of Berks County Community Foundation,
Bret Scallions of Fuel will be headlining
a special Downtown Alive concert that
same evening. As we move ahead with
our anniversary season, with full capacity,
we have one aspect we want to focus on:
community. That's why we're using the
hashtag #Roar20gether. It symbolizes
how after two decades (and a global
health pandemic), we are still together
as one community.
