Five venues to bring live music back to Cincinnati this summer

FOr all striped music lovers, 2020 has raised a unique and frustrating challenge. As the pandemic progressed, the artist canceled the show and the venue closed the door. Almost a year later, in 2021, the concert didn’t seem to come back, but fortunately it wasn’t. Live music is back. From local talent to industry legends, musicians will return to the stage for Greater Cincinnati as a whole in the coming months.
