Friday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, Holly Fields the director of marketing at the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences joined Dave and Matt to talk about several upcoming events at the Buddy Holly Hall, Broadway shows, their clear bag policy, and more.

The discussion with Fields saying that she can already tell that the Buddy Holly Hall will be used a lot, as it is the nicest venue she's ever been to, has great acoustics, has garnered a lot of interest from the community, and has several artists already lining up to use it. Holly has been honored to work there, and looks forward to what shows and events are coming in the future.

Fields had many upcoming shows and events to talk about, including the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra performing with David Gaschen this Saturday at 7:30 in the main hall, the famed comedian Brian Regan doing a comedy show, the Price is Right Live which has just added a 2nd show, Alton Brown's "Beyond the Eats", Mannheim Steamroller performing right after Christmas, "Kristen Chenoweth in Concert: For the Girls", and "Disney Princess" which will be their first children's show. The Buddy Holly Hall will also host several Broadway shows, with their very first being "The Buddy Holly Story". Additionally, they will have the First Friday Art Trail with people making brisket, Ballet Lubbock giving away tutus, and Lubbock ISD showcasing children's art. Fields said that it is looking like it will be a good year despite the delayed start due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can get tickets for these events at www.buddyhollyhall.com.

Another topic of discussion was their clear bag policy and why it is in place. Fields said that a lot of venues are having clear bag policies, and a lot of artists ask that venues put those policies in place as well. She explained that it helps get people inside a lot faster, as it is easier security screening due to the fact that their security does not have to riffle through bags. Additionally, they are trying to reduce points of contact as much as they can due to COVID, so eliminating security's need to touch everyone's stuff can help in a big way.
