List of changes for concerts scheduled at Portsmouth’s Union Bank & Trust Pavilion

PORTSMOUTH, Va. – Several concerts at the Union Bank & Trust Pavilion are being changed due to structural concerns with the venue’s roof. 

Engineers noticed a deformity in the support structure that holds the tent canopy during a routine inspection last week, the city manager said. The engineering team said a potential critical condition exists at the structure and recommended removing the tent canopy and having an open-tent season.
